HC Deb 24 February 1964 vol 690 cc23-4W
94. Mr. W. Hamilton

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance whether he now intends to introduce legislation to implement a wage-related unemployment payment scheme; and what discussions he is currently having with the trade unions on the problem.

Mr. Wood

I am having discussions with the two sides of industry about the problems involved in relating unemployment benefit to earnings. I have nothing further to say at present.
