§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will give the actual or estimated savings in cash and manpower by paying unemployment pay on a fortnightly, monthly, three-monthly and six-monthly basis in 303W advance; and what plans he has for taking this action.
§ Mr. Golding
Consideration has not been given and there are no plans for the payment of unemployment benefits fortnightly, monthly, three months or six months in advance. I am therefore unable to give any actual or estimated savings in cash or manpower that might result from the introduction of such methods of payment.
