§ 4. Sir PERCY HARRIS
asked the Minister of Labour when the new regulations under the Unemployment Insurance Act are likely to be ready for submission to the House?
§ The MINISTER of LABOUR (Mr. Oliver Stanley)
I presume the hon. Member has in mind the regulations under Part II of the Unemployment Act, 1934. I am not yet able to make any statement on the subject.
§ 5. Mr. JOEL
asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the claims now being put forward by trade unions and trade councils that the scale of relief should be the same as the trade union rates of wages that a man would receive were he employed, he can state what would be the extra cost of unemployment relief on this basis over and above the normal average public assistance scales in force to-day?
