HC Deb 08 April 1937 vol 322 c378W
Mr. Leach

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will at an early date lower the unemployment insurance waiting period for agricultural workers to bring it in line with that of other workers?

Mr. E. Brown

The agricultural insurance scheme is on a separate financial basis. If the Unemployment Insurance Statutory Committee report in due course that the scheme has a disposable surplus, the question of applying this to the reduction of the waiting period will be considered.
