Mr. T. THOMSON
asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the fact that the present Unemployment Insurance Act terminates on 30th June, 1926, and therefore legislation will be required this year on the subject, he will state when he will be in a position to introduce a Bill, or if he is prepared to make a statement?
§ Mr. BETTERTON
It is certainly necessary that further legislation with regard to unemployment insurance should be carried through so as to come into operation immediately after 30th June, 1926, but my right hon. Friend cannot undertake to introduce a Bill for this purpose during the present Session.
