§ Mr. R. MORRISON
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that 30 employés of the Parks Department of the Tottenham Urban District Council paid contributions to the National Insurance Fund from 8th November, 1920, to 30th January, 1924, when it was discovered that the whole of these payments had been made in error; whether he has received an application from the Tottenham Council for a refund of the contributions paid; and what decision has been arrived at?
I find that an application has been made by the Tottenham Urban District Council for a1842W refund of unemployment insurance contributions wrongly paid in respect of 33 employés of the Parks Department. The sum of £285 14s. 2d. in settlement of this claim was forwarded to the treasurer of the council on 1st April together with a schedule explaining the reasons for certain deductions from the amount claimed.
