§ 11. Mr. SMEDLEY CROOKE
asked the Minister of Labour whether he will consider the advisability of using the accumulated surplus of the Unemployment Insurance Fund in granting bonuses 1985 to all insured men and women on reaching the age of 65, providing they have drawn nothing from the fund during their period of insurance?
§ Mr. E. BROWN
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave on the 2nd July to the hon. Member for Plaistow (Mr. Thorne), of which I am sending him a copy.
