§ 18. Sir PERCY HARRIS (for Mr. GRAHAM WHITE)
asked the Minister of Labour the number of advisory committees which have been established under the Unemployment Act, 1934, and the number of these committees which have met to give advice on local conditions?
Under the Unemployment Assistance Act the establishment of advisory committees is a matter entirely for the Unemployment Assistance Board. I am informed by the board that no such committees have yet been established, but that their constitution and the best method of making use of them are under active consideration.
§ Sir P. HARRIS:
What is the reason for this delay? The board has had several months to think the question out, and is it not time it took action?
