HC Deb 01 February 1934 vol 285 c514
7. Major CARVER

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has yet considered the arrangements to be made for the registration of agricultural workers under the Unemployment Bill; and whether he will give an assurance that they will not be expected to attend at Employment Exchanges far distant from their homes, but that there will be some simplified form of machinery to enable them to conform in this respect with the regulations?


I am not sure whether my hon. Friend is referring to the provisions of Part I or those of Part II of the Bill, the latter of which will be under the control of the proposed Unemployment Assistance Board. While no definite arrangements have yet been made, I can assure him that the point he mentions will be carefully kept in mind.
