§ 4. Mr. J. Griffiths
asked the Minister of Labour whether the Unemployment Assistance Board are prepared to extend the period during which winter allowances are paid in view of the exceptional severity of the weather in recent months?
§ Mr. E. Brown
The Board inform me that they do not consider that the circumstances call for any extension of the period during which winter additions are being paid this winter beyond the date which has been communicated to the House and to each applicant concerned.
§ Mr. Griffiths
Do I gather that the circumstances due to the exceptional winter weather in recent months do not call for consideration?
