§ 43. Mr. PALING
asked the Minister of Labour if he can state the estimated number of unemployed persons in the non-insurable trades and industries in Great Britain; and will he state the estimated number of unemployed persons who do not trouble to register because they have exhausted their benefits?
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
On 2nd March last the number of persons entered on the registers of the Employment Exchanges as non-claimants to benefit was 66,549. I am afraid I cannot give any estimate of the number of unemployed persons not registered at the Exchanges.
