§ Mr. E. Brown
When all cases had been reviewed under the new Regulations in December last about 2,800 persons in the Unemployment Assistance Board's two Birmingham areas were in receipt of more than they would have received under the standstill arrangements. In the week ended 29th January, which is the latest date for which information is available, one person was in receipt of less than he would have received under the standstill arrangements.
