HC Deb 08 April 1930 vol 237 c1978W

asked the Minister of Labour what is the estimated increased cost falling on the Unemployment Insurance Fund for the financial year ending March, 1931, of the payment of benefit to unemployed persons and their dependants who, but for the provisions of the last Unemployment Insurance Acts, would have been dependent on Poor Law relief?


I regret that information is not available showing to what extent persons who become entitled to benefit under the provisions of the Unemployment Insurance Act, 1930, would, but for the receipt of such benefit, have been dependent on Poor Law relief.
