asked the President of the Board of Trade, whether he can state what amounts have been paid by each of the trade unions and friendly societies to their members in each of the last five years in respect of unemployed benefits, sickness, and accident benefits, respectively; and also give the names of the societies making the payments, and in each society the total number of members and the number of members receiving such benefits?
I am sending to the hon. Member references to the official publications which contain information on the points he mentions.
§ Mr. ALBERT SMITH
Does the answer only refer to the trade unions registered under the Friendly Societies Act?
