§ 43. Mr. WARDLAW-MILNE
asked the Minister of Labour what is the average number of trade unionists upon the staff of the Employment Exchanges administering the unemployment insurance funds throughout the country; and what percentage these numbers form of the total numbers on the staff?
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
All persons employed at Employment Exchanges are civil servants, permanent or temporary, as the case may be. Perhaps my hon. Friend has in mind the arrangement under which standard benefit or extended benefit granted by an employment committee may be paid through a trade union or other association in cases in which the trade union or association itself also pays unemployment benefit.
