§ 90. Sir F. WISE
asked the Minister of Labour what is the increase in numbers of insured people in 1925 for unemployment benefits?
§ Mr. BETTERTON
The estimates of the numbers of persons insured under the Unemployment Insurance Acts are computed once a year from information obtained in connection with the annual exchange of unemployment books in July, and consequently they relate to the position at July of each year. The estimated increase between July, 1924, and July, 1925, in the numbers insured in Great Britain is 219,000.
