HC Deb 22 May 1928 vol 217 cc1698-9

asked the Minister of Labour whether on the coming into operation of the Unemployment Insurance Act, 1927, any directions were given to Employment Exchanges that the claims of men recently employed on schemes for which a contribution is made by boards of guardians should be subject to special scrutiny and be forwarded to Kew for decision, although the first statutory condition was satisfied; whether claims by men ordinarily engaged by private firms were similarly dealt with; and whether he will circulate to Members of the House copies of any directions issued regarding the position of men recently employed on schemes assisted by-boards of guardians?


No such instructions or directions have been issued.
