HC Deb 29 April 1930 vol 238 cc9-10

asked the Minister of Labour the number of claims for unemployment benefit of men and women, respectively, which have been refused on the not normally in insurable employment ground since the new Act came into operation to the nearest available date, and the corresponding figures for the preceding two years?


The first set of figures under the new Act are for the period ending 14th April. The returns are not yet complete, and it will take a little time to tabulate them. I will let my hon. Friend know when the figures are avail- able, or, if he prefers to put this question down again in about a fortnight's time, I hope an answer can then be given.
