HC Deb 16 July 1925 vol 186 c1525

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what charges will fall on the Budget of 1926-27 in respect of the Exchequer contribution to unemployment insurance?

The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Churchill)

The estimated Exchequer contribution to the Unemployment Fund for the current year is £13,105,000. The additional charges to be incurred in 1926–27 are dependent on the decisions taken on the Bill now before Parliament and the course of unemployment, as to which I would refer the hon. Member to the Report of the Government Actuary on the Bill.
