1929 with Ramsay MacDonald
14 of 174
What did the government need and what did they do to get it?
They needed money as the gov. Was in debt and the depression made it difficult to borrow money and so the gov. Made huge spending cuts (e.g. Reduced workers wages by 10-15%) but still could not pay the 1929 unemployment benefits.
15 of 174
What made this worse?
The unemployment insurance act would push up the cost of benefits because under this act more people would be entitled to benefits and claimants no longer had to prove that they were 'actively seeking work'.
16 of 174
As a result what did the government do in August 1931?
They discussed cutting the benefit rate by 15% and installed a means test
17 of 174
What happened in 1934?
The government made the unemployment act.
18 of 174
What was the unemployment act?
It clarified the different types of benefit.
19 of 174
What was one type of benefit?
1) national insurance benefit was the right of everyone paying their NI contributions. There was no means test but you only got it for 15 weeks.

What was the other type of benefit?
The 'dole' was a lower payment given to those who had not paid their NI contributions OR who had already had 15 weeks of NI. The dole was means tested.
21 of 174
What was the special areas act and when was it introduced?
It gave £2 million to help these areas: Scotland, Tyneside, Cumberland and South Wales. It was introduced in 1934.
22 of 174
How did they get payments from this?
Local authorities applied for money to be spent on 'economic development and social improvement' but it wasn't enough to solve these areas problems.
23 of 174
Why did the special areas act not help all?
It was businesses that had to claim and in the worst hit areas the businesses had already all collapsed so this didn't help.
24 of 174
What happened in 1937?
The special areas (amendment) act gave tax cuts and low rents to businesses that moved into special areas, but these weren't enough to convince businesses to relocate.
25 of 174
In what ways was the unemployment experience the same for everyone?
You had to go to the employment exchange at least once a week, all those not on NI benefit had to go through the degrading means test.
26 of 174
What did a British medical study show?
That in 1933 it cost 5s 1d to feed a person the minimum food for proper nourishment but that by 1938 44% of those on the dole could not afford this.
27 of 174
In what ways were everyone's unemployment experiences different?
Would you take any work? Would you spend all day everyday looking for work? Did you have family? Did you spend in just essentials or some niceties as well?
