asked the Minister of Labour how many cases at the South Kirkby Exchange have been considered under the Unemployment Insurance (Transitional Payments) Regulations, 1931; and what numbers of men, women, youths and girls have been put off benefit?
§ Sir H. BETTERTON,
pursuant to his reply [OFFICIAL REPORT, 26th November, 1931; col. 479, Vol. 260], supplied the following statement:
Between 12th and 21st November, 1931, determinations had been made by public assistance committees for the Osgoldcross area, in which the South Kirkby Exchange is situated, on 211 applications for transitional payments, of which 209 were in respect of men and two in respect of women. In the case of eight applications (all made by men) the determination provided that no transitional payment should be made. These figures include cases arising from Employment Exchanges other than South Kirkby, for which separate figures are not available. Juveniles under 18 are not entitled to transitional payments and claims by juveniles are not referred to public assistance committees. At 23rd November, 1931, there was one boy on the registers of the South Kirkby Employment Exchange who had ceased to be entitled to insurance benefit under the new rules.
