HC Deb 29 February 1928 vol 214 c408
41. Mr. BATEY

asked the Minister of Labour the total estimated cost of administration and the amount to be paid in benefits to unemployed workmen out of the Unemployment Insurance Fund during the year 1928?


The estimated cost of administration of the Unemployment Fund in the year ending 31st March, 1929, is £4,930,000. The amount of unemployment benefit to be paid will, of course, depend upon the volume of unemployment; for the calendar year 1927 it was £36,750,000.
