§ 29. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton
asked the Minister of Labour the latest number of registered unemployed at the Brixton Employment Exchange; and how it compares with the corresponding figure last year.
§ Lieut.-Colonel Lipton
Does that not again represent more than twice as many unemployed this year as compared with last year—at a time when seasonal unemployment ought to be at its lowest?
§ Sir W. Monckton
The hon. and gallant Gentleman will be happy to notice that the improvement in the last month is over 300, and that the figure in 1950 was about the same as now.
