HC Deb 01 May 1928 vol 216 c1537W

asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the hardship that is caused by the Clause in the Unemployment Insurance Act preventing the payment of benefit in respect of women acting as housekeepers to unmarried men or widowers, or women who are in charge of their children, he will consider the introduction of amending legislation?


The new Act does not abolish the allowance for a housekeeper in any case in which it was payable previously. On the contrary it extends the cases where this allowance is payable.
