§ 12. Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
asked the Minister of Labour the number of claims for unemployment benefit disallowed, under each cause of disqualification, and the percentage in each case to total claims, for each month of the year ending on the 31st May, 1930?
§ Miss BONDFIELD
As the reply includes a table of figures, I will, if I may, circulate a statement in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
Can the Minister of Labour give me two figures; first, how far the figure for those who were disqualified as not normally insurable compares with the figure a year ago?
§ Miss BONDFIELD
I shall be obliged if the right hon. Member will await the publication of the statement.
