HC Deb 05 March 1936 vol 309 cc1588-9W

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will give the number of persons in receipt of transitional payments in each Employment Exchange area in the county of Cumberland, with the weekly cost of benefit, during the three months ended December, 1934, and December, 1935, respectively, and the cost had ordinary insurance benefits applied?


As regards the first part of the question, I am having the figures extracted and will circulate a statement in the OFFICIAL REPORT as soon as they are available. As regards the second part of the question, the cost had insurance benefit been paid could not be ascertained without an examination of each individual case and I should not feel justified in authorising such an examination.
