§ 40. Mr. E. WILLIAMS
asked the Minister of Labour the number of persons in receipt of unemployment benefit and transitional payments, respectively, at Maesteg, Ogmore Vale, Pontycymmer, Aberkenfig and Bridgend Employment Exchanges for the last four years, separately, to date?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of LABOUR (Mr. R. S. Hudson)
As the reply includes a table of figures, I will, if I may, circulate a statement in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Following is the statement:
§ registration under the Palestine Immigration Ordinance. I understand that the number of such immigrants from Transjordan is in fact small. As regards the question of immigration into Palestine generally, I would remind the hon. Member that this is governed by the economic capacity of the country to absorb new entrants.
