HC Deb 25 February 1937 vol 320 c2211W
Mr. Burke

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that in the Burnley Labour Exchange area the means test is being applied not only to the households of applicants for benefit, but to the households of persons, not themselves applicants, who are looking after dependent children of applicants who are widowers; and if he will say whether such practice has his approval, in view of the regulations?

Mr. E. Brown

I do not know to what circumstances the hon. Member refers. If he will be so good as to supply me with particulars of the cases he has in mind, I will cause inquiry to be made.
