HC Deb 19 December 1935 vol 307 cc1960-1W

asked the Minister of Labour whether, under paragraph 2 of Form B3z of the Unemployment Assistance Board, it is intended that all Christmas boxes, whether of money or in kind, should be reported?


As indicated in reply to the right hon. Member for Bow and Bromley (Mr. Lansbury) on the 9th December casual Christmas gifts will not be taken into account by the board's officers in the assessment of allowances. In the applicants' own interests, however, in order to avoid misunderstanding their proper course is to report cash receipts of this kind as directed on the form.
