§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of LABOUR (Mr. R. S. Hudson)
I have been asked to 36 reply. The restoration of one-half of the reduction in rates of benefit made in October, 1931, would increase the amount of benefit, in respect of the present number of claimants, by about £2,200,000 per annum. This figure does not include transitional payments.
§ Sir H. CROFT
Will the hon. Gentleman also bear in mind the very great cut of something like 30 per cent. on those who used to receive interest on War Loan?
