HC Deb 20 June 1935 vol 303 cc524-5
5. Mr. G. HALL (for Mr. LAWSON)

asked the Minister of Labour whether he proposes to make regulations, as provided by the Unemployment Act, 1934, for crediting unemployment insurance contributions to children who have remained at school after the school-leaving age; and whether the regulations will apply to children who leave school at the end of the summer term this year?


I propose to submit a draft of these regulations to the Unemployment Insurance Statutory Committee at an early date. It was originally contemplated that these regulations should be applied to children who leave school this summer, but I am advised that under the existing law this cannot be done. I hope, however, that with general agreement it may be possible to pass a short amending Bill this Session.
