HC Deb 09 March 1927 vol 203 c1219

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that the Regulations governing the administration of extended benefit have operated so as to throw a large number of unemployed on to the Poor Law relief and thus increased the local rates; and can he see his way to modify these Regulations in view of the already heavy burden of local rates?

The MINISTER of LABOUR (Sir Arthur Steel-Maitland)

No, Sir.
