§ Mr. T. SMITH
asked the Secretary for Mines the number of persons killed and seriously injured in the mining industry during the 11 months ended 30th Novem-1124W
the Unemployment Insurance Act, the farmer and the labourer paying half the usual contribution, but the labourer getting full benefit?
§ Sir H. BETTERTON
It is not possible with the data available at present to estimate the cost of such arrangements. The Noble Lord will be aware, however, that provision is made in the Unemployment Bill now before the House for the Unemployment Insurance Statutory Committee to make such proposals as may seem to them practicable for the insurance against unemployment of persons engaged in employment in agriculture, and to make a report which will be laid before Parliament.
