HC Deb 10 February 1937 vol 320 cc408-9
73. Captain Heilgers

asked the Minister of Labour whether the Unemployment Insurance Statutory Committee has considered the question of the extension of unemployment insurance to gamekeepers; and, if so, will he state the decision arrived at?

Captain Hope (Lord of the Treasury)

I have been asked to reply. The answer is, No, Sir.

Captain Heilgers

Will the hon. and gallant Member ask my right hon. Friend to invite the Committee to decide the question at an early date, as the gamekeepers' position is similar to that of private gardeners, who have already been included in insurance?

Captain Hope

I will convey my hon. and gallant Friend's remarks to my hon. and gallant Friend.
