§ Mr. W. THORNE
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether the costs have been taxed for the hearing in the three Courts in connection with the proceedings taken by the Inland Revenue Commissioners versus Wilson; and if he is now in a position to state the total legal cost?40W
of undertakings are not available. The following statement gives the number of persons insured under the Unemployment Insurance Acts in Great Britain classified as belonging to the gas, water and electricity supply group as a whole, and the numbers of such persons recorded as unemployed. In addition to the insured persons, there are in the employment of these undertakings a number of other persons who are excepted from unemployment insurance under certificates of exception, but statistics in respect of these persons are not available.
The answer to both parts of the question is in the negative. It is estimated that the total costs in this case will not exceed £1,000.
