HC Deb 20 March 1934 vol 287 cc1050-2W

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, for each of the following counties, namely, Caithness, Sutherland, Aberdeenshire, Berwickshire, Lanarkshire and Dumbartonshire, and for each of the following cities, namely, Edinburgh and Glasgow, the average weekly expenditure upon the relief of able-bodied persons for the six months beginning June, 1930, and for each subsequent period of six months?


The following statement shows the average weekly expenditure on the relief of the able-bodied poor and their dependants incurred by Poor Law authorities in the areas referred to during each period of six months since 17th May, 1930:

recommend their members to observe voluntarily in Scotland all the Home Office "model conditions" except Condition 3 (which relates to the admission of children under 16 during the exhibition of "A" films, that is, films passed "for public exhibition to adult audiences"). The representatives of the Scottish branch of the association have, on their part, pledged themselves to do all in their power, both individually and collectively, to ensure that the arrangement is in fact observed by their members. The conditions recommended for voluntary observance by Scottish cinematograph exhibitors on the basis of the arrangement referred to are contained in Scottish Office Circular No. 2833 of 26th January last, a copy of which I am sending to the Noble Lady. As stated in the Circular, the whole matter will be reviewed in the light of practical experience of the working of the arrangement.
