HC Deb 22 July 1935 vol 304 c1477
29. Mr. THORNE

asked the Minister of Labour whether he can give any reason why new orders making changes in the unemployment regulations have not been circulated to the Members of the House, in view of the fact that they have already been published in one of the London evening newspapers?

Lieut.-Colonel MUIRHEAD

I am afraid my hon. Friend has been giving too much credit to unauthorised statements in the Press. Any draft of new regulations will be laid before Parliament as soon as it is made.


Has the Parliamentary Secretary seen the reports in the newspapers which give the fundamental alterations which are to take place? Is it not perfectly evident that the report is in the possession of the Department, and should not Members of the House have it as well?
