§ Mr. OLIVER
asked the Minister of Labour the number of claims for ex- 2633W tended benefit which have been rejected by the Employment Exchange, Ripley, Derbyshire, during the 12 months ending 27th February?

Separate figures are not available for Ripley, which is covered by the local Employment Committee at Sutton-in-Ashfield. During the period, 10th February, 1925, to 8th February, 1926, 2,400 applications for extended benefit were recommended for allowance and 680 for disallowance by that committee.
