§ 43. Sir KINGSLEY WOOD
asked the Minister of Health the amount of money in hand available for unemployment grants in respect of approved employment schemes; whether he proposes making provision for additional grants of this kind; and what are the intentions of the Government concerning the 100 per cent. grants in this connection?
§ The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Arthur Greenwood)
I presume that the right hon. Member has in mind the 100 per cent. grants. The whole of the money for England and Wales has been allocated, except some £16,000 kept in hand for engineering contingencies. The allocated money is paid as work proceeds and £220,000 has already been so paid. Provision has not been made for grants on the 100 per cent. basis in addition to the money already voted.
