§ Sir F. SANDERSON
asked the Minister of Labour the exact date when the payment of uncovenanted benefit was first instituted, and the total amount of payments to date of such uncovenanted benefit?
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
Grants of benefit of the kind which came to be known as "uncovenanted" were first instituted under the Unemployment Insurance Act, 1921, which took effect on 3rd March, 1921. In August last, under the Unemployment Insurance (No. 2) Act, 1924, extended benefit took the place of uncovenanted benefit. No separate records are kept of the amounts of uncovenanted or extended benefit paid.
