HC Deb 06 May 1927 vol 205 c1904W

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that during the period 2nd October, 1926, to 26th March, 1927, no fewer than 427 unemployed men and 10 women were transferred from the books of the Clydebank Employment Exchange to the local parish council; whether he is aware that these men have 910 dependants; and what is the estimated saving to the Unemployment Insurance Fund?


My records do not enable me to check the figures in the first two parts of the question; as regards the last part, I assume the persons concerned were held not to be entitled to unemployment benefit and there was, therefore, no saving to the Unemployment Fund.
