§ 2. Mr. MITCHESON
asked the Minister of Labour the present amount of the indebtedness of the Unemployment Insurance Fund?
§ The MINISTER of LABOUR (Sir Henry Betterton)
The debt of the unemployment fund at present outstanding is £107, 780,000.
§ Mr. HAMMERSLEY
In view of the fact that the answer shows that there has been a considerable reduction in the debt, and of the fact that the reduction in the debt is being paid for as to two-thirds by industry, would my right hon. Friend consider dealing with it rather more on the lines of the Royal Commission report?
