HC Deb 10 May 1934 vol 289 c1229
2. Mr. WEST

asked the Minister of Labour the number of persons in receipt of benefit from the Unemployment Insurance Fund at the Shepherd's Bush Employment Exchange, and the number in receipt of transitional payments?


At 23rd April, 1934, the numbers of persons on the registers of the Shepherd's Bush Employment Exchange with claims admitted for insurance benefit and transitional payments were 3,736 and 2,437, respectively.


asked the Minister of Labour whether any statistics are available showing the average annual amount of employés' contributions to the Unemployment Insurance Fund which can be regarded as untouched profit owing to the inability of the contributors to keep up contributions, either through passing the insurable limit of income or owing to their taking up business on their own account?


I regret that there are no statistics of the kind to which my hon. Friend refers.
