HC Deb 24 November 1925 vol 188 c1146
51. Mr. T. KENNEDY

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware of the increasing extent to which the administration of such Measures as the War Pensions Acts and the Unemployment Insurance Acts is regulated by instructions and regulations issued to the administrative bodies concerned, and that these instructions and regulations are not made public or communicated to those principally concerned; and whether he will consider the advisability, in the public interest, of publishing these instructions and regulations or, alternatively, of circulating them to Members of this House as they are issued?


My information is that the instructions and regulations which are issued to their local bodies by the Departments concerned with the Acts mentioned are available to Members of this House and largely, also, to the general public.
