§ 1. Mr. MANDER
asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that expert inquiries recently held have shown that the bare minimum cost of maintenance of children is between 5s. and 6s. per head per week; and whether he will take steps 1894 to see that allowances on this scale are available under unemployment insurance and transitional benefit?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of LABOUR (Mr. R. S. Hudson)
I can add nothing to the reply which my right hon. Friend gave to a similar question put by the hon. Member on 16th March.
§ Mr. MANDER
Is the hon. Member aware that the minimum sum required is set out in the Annual Report of the Chief Medical Officer of the Board of Education for 1931, and does he think therefore that 2s. is adequate for the purpose?
