HC Deb 08 February 1934 vol 285 c1276
11. Mr. LAWSON

asked the Minister of Labour the cost of restoring the 10 per cent. cut to the unemployed?


The restoration of the reduction in rates of benefit made in October, 1931, would, on the basis of finance assumed for the Unemployment Bill, increase the amount of benefit estimated to be payable by about £5,700,000. This figure does not include transitional payments.
