§ 61. Mr. SMEDLEY CROOKE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in view of the improved financial position of the country and the increase in the number of employed, with consequent reduction in the cost to the State in unemployment benefit, he will consider the advisability of restoring the cuts in unemployment benefit which were made as a measure of economy in 1931?
§ 53. Sir JOHN HASLAM
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give an assurance that the unemployed will have preference when any restoration of the economy cuts is made?
§ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Chamberlain)
I cannot add anything to the full statements I made during the Debates on the Second Reading of the Unemployment Bill and on the Financial Resolution in connection with that Bill.
