HC Deb 02 March 1939 vol 344 c1451
94. Mr. Pilkington

asked the Minister of Labour whether he can give an estimate of the number of family allowances being paid in industry?

Mr. E. Brown

I regret that the information which my hon. Friend desires is not available.

Mr. Pilkington

Will my right hon. Friend try to get the figures?

Mr. Brown

I am not sure that they exist, but I will inquire from the federation whether they have any information?

Mr. Pilkington

Is it not a fact that my right hon. Friend has had a very good innings this afternoon against very erratic bowling?
