§ 2. Sir FRANK SANDERSON
asked the Minister of Labour the total number of men, women, and boys partially employed and in receipt of unemployment benefit?
§ The MINISTER of LABOUR (Mr. Ernest Brown)
As the reply includes a Table of figures, I will, if I may, circulate a statement in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
