HC Deb 09 November 1939 vol 353 cc446-7W
Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that the Unemployment Assistance Board is taking into account in assessing the needs of parents the total allowances of their sons serving in His Majesty's Forces, thereby placing the parents in the same position as if the sons had never joined the forces or made an allotment; and whether he will take the matter up with the Board to ease the financial position of the parents in such cases?

Mr. E. Brown

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Aberdare (Mr. G. Hall) to-day.
