HC Deb 29 June 1927 vol 208 cc410-1W

asked the Minister of Labour the number of uninsured persons now in the two months' file; and whether there has been any recent investigation into a proportion of the men on this file with a view to determining how many of these persons are working in uninsured occupations, how many are receiving help from the guardians, and how many have died?


The two months' file consists of unemployment books, and therefore relates exclusively to persons who were insured when information was last available with regard to them. There has been no special investigation of the file, but among others the books of all persons known to be at work or to be deceased would be excluded from it under the ordinary procedure.
