§ 66. Major PRESCOTT
asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider the expediency of not proceeding further with the Unemployment Insurance Bill pending the Report of the Departmental Committee on the work of the Unemployment Exchanges?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
As the dread of unemployment is undoubtedly one of the causes of under production, the Government think it is essential that the Unemployment Insurance Bill should be passed into law at the earliest possible moment. Accordingly it is not practicable to postpone further proceedings on this Bill pending the Report of the Departmental Committee to which the hon. and gallant Member refers.
