HC Deb 18 July 1929 vol 230 c673W

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that regulations imposed by his predecessor compel unemployed men who have exhausted benefit rights of unemployment insurance to do task work each day except Saturday in the local institutions of this country; and whether, as this rule prevents them looking for work and bars them from again qualifying for benefit, he will at once cancel this regulation?


I presume my hon. Friend refers to the requirements of the Relief Regulation Order, 1911. I am not aware that those requirements prevent either a search for work or future qualification for benefit, but I shall be glad to investigate any particular case of hardship which my hon. Friend may have in mind.
