§ 4. Miss Wilkinson
asked the Minister of Labour why unemployed men in the hostel at Hebburn who have received the extra winter relief of is for the last two winters, have now been refused it when their conditions remain the same but their commitments are greater owing to the increased cost of living?
§ Mr. E. Brown
I understand from the Unemployment Assistance Board that arrangements have now been made to pay these men winter additions, with effect from the commencement of the period during which winter allowances are in operation.
