HC Deb 12 February 1934 vol 285 c1580

asked the Minister of Labour whether it is intended that a boy on leaving an elementary school, who cannot find full employment and who is engaged during week-ends only in delivering milk and other domestic commodities, shall be compulsorily insured under the Unemployment Bill; and whether, in order that he may be brought within the compulsory provisions of the scheme, he must be so employed for a stipulated number of hours during each such week-end?


The intention is that employment of this kind shall not be insurable if it is only carried on to an inconsiderable extent and that regulations to this effect shall be made under Clause 2 (3) of the Unemployment Bill. It is not possible at present to say precisely how the regulations will be framed.
