§ 82. Mr. SORENSEN
asked the Minister of Labour the number of male and female unemployed, respectively, registered at the Leyton Employment Exchange on 1st July; and the estimated number who were enabled to receive benefit through the operation of the Unemployment Insurance Act, 1930?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of LABOUR (Mr. Lawson)
At 30th June, 1930, there were 3,231 males and 991 females on the registers of the Leyton and Waltham-stow Employment Exchange. I am unable to give for separate Exchanges the number who have been enabled to receive benefit through the operation of the Unemployment Insurance Act, 1930. I may mention, however, that on 10th March there were 4,307 persons on the register of the Leyton and Walthamstow Exchange, of whom 85.6 per cent. had claims admitted or under consideration; on 30th June the figures were 4,222 and 91.2 per cent.
