Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance Bill.: Clause 4. — (Rates of unemployment benefit.) (23 Nov 1927)

Mr William Hirst: Is it not a fact that the hon. Gentleman and the Minister of Labour have both attempted to convey to the House and the country that at least these people were favourable to this reduction?

I hope there are other Committees in the country who have been courageous enough to resist these...

Mr William Hirst: If these firms get more prosperous as the years go on under the subsidy would it not be possible for the Minister to say to these people, "We came to your help in your time of need"?
