§ 12. Mr. GRAHAM WHITE
asked the Minister of Labour the practice adopted by the Unemployment Assistance Board in the relief of needs arising under hire-purchase agreements?
§ Mr. E. BROWN
I understand from the Board that the practice adopted by it is based on the view that, as a general rule, an allowance under the regulations cannot properly be increased to enable the recipient to make payments under a hire-purchase agreement. In special cases, if hardship would result from failure to complete the agreement, the practice is modified.
