HC Deb 23 July 1934 vol 292 c1528
44. Mr. DORAN

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will consider taking steps in the near future to grant to those who have continuously paid into the Unemployment Insurance Fund without drawing any benefit a rebate of their accumulated contributions?


No, Sir. This method has been tried in the past and abandoned. The preferable method appears to be to give increased benefit rights to those with relatively good contribution records, as in done in the Unemployment Insurance Act recently passed.
