Date12 November 1920
DescriptionWrites on the topic of the new Unemployment Insurance Act. Explains that certain members of the Society's staff can apply for exemption easily, however, the income of other members will lie below the exempting sum. Further notes that the Society does not qualify as a local authority so cannot claim exemption on those grounds. Comments that it seems hopeless to proceed, but encloses the relevant papers for David Prain's information [not enclosed].
