HC Deb 01 November 1934 vol 293 cc327-8

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of the anxiety of disabled ex-service men to have those parts of the Unemployment Act put into force which affect the manner in which their pensions shall be taken into account in calculating need; and whether he can give any indication as to when the Act will be put into force in this respect


It is my desire to bring these provisions into force as soon as possible and according to present proposals the First Appointed Day as my hon. Friend knows, is to be 7th January. I regret that it is not possible to propose an earlier date.
