§ Mr. DEVLIN
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that if a recognised trade or industry in Ireland is not 1217W certified by the Lord Lieutenant, eves though there be a substantial amount of unemployment in these trades directly caused by the cessation of hostilities, no unemployment donation is paid to those out of work; and whether, in view of the suffering endured, he will take action to remedy the grievance complained of?
§ Sir R. HORNE
The Out-of-work Donation scheme for civilian workers in Ireland is limited to insured workmen and workers in a trade certified by the Lord Lieutenant as one in which there is a substantial amount of unemployment directly caused by the cessation of hostilities. The linen and cotton trade has already been so certified, and certain other trades are now under consideration in this conjunction.
