I wish to say that I neither had, nor have, any intent of setting any new precedents...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance Bill. (7 Jul 1925)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: .... That was laid down as a statutory condition, though the Minister was given power to waive it, and one of the primary reasons for this Bill—the primary reason—is the fact that his power of waiver under the Act of last year comes automatically to an end on 30th September next. The last provision in last year's Act to which I would call attention, which is also of importance, as I hope...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance Bill. (30 Jul 1925)

Mr Campbell Stephen: With regard to the point in respect of the Clause which gives the Minister the power of waiver for an extended period, would it be possible to have a discussion if I put down an Amendment to leave out Clause 2 in order that we might deal with some points which arise? Would it be possible to hand in a manuscript Amendment to leave out Clause 2?

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance Bill.: Clause 3. — (Amendment as to waiting period.) (30 Jul 1925)

Mr Arthur Steel-Maitland: ...that it causes, expenses and incomings have to be adjusted together, and the rate of benefits has to bear some relation to the rate of contributions. It is from that point of view that, when the waiver is continued, and when the rate of benefit is continued at its full amount, I am trying to see how things can balance, and, taking all in all, this is how the burden can be so adjusted as to...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance Bill. (31 Jul 1925)

Mr Arthur Greenwood: ...register our protest against the Measure and to express our detestation of some of its Clauses. The position with which the right hon. Gentleman the Minister of Labour was confronted was that the waiver Section in the 1924 Act would come to an end very shortly.
