§ 46. Mr. KIRKWOOD
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has considered the petition from the town council of Clydebank in favour of the Government increasing the allowance to the children of the unemployed from 2s. to 3s. a week; and what does he propose to do about it?
§ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Chamberlain)
I have seen the letter from the Town Council of Clydebank on this matter. I have nothing to add to the statements upon this subject made during the Debates on the Committee stage of the Unemployment Bill.
§ Mr. KIRKWOOD
Is not the Chancellor of the Exchequer aware that 26 different town councils and county councils in Scotland are in favour of this increase?
