In 1932 almost 1 out of 4 Britain was out of work. Many were on the dole (government relief for the unemployed).

Another Answer:

Great Britain passed the "Unemployment Act, 1934", which amended the "Insurance Act, 1911"; from the "Old Age Pension Act, 1908; from the "Poor Law", See the Related Link below for more details.
