It seems clear that there will be some stormy scenes
on the debates in the Unemployment Regulations. The main difficulty will be that under the terms of the Unemployment Act of 1934, under which the regulations have been drawn up, no amendment is possible, and that the Government will once more be faced with the choice of carrying them through, whatever mischievous features may be exposed in them during the. discussions, or abandoning them altogether. Mr. Buchanan made a good point on Wednesday afternoon when he reminded the Prime Minister that in the framing of these regula- tions the actual Members of Parliament sent to West- minster to represent the unemployed had not been consulted.
