HC Deb 05 March 1937 vol 321 cc685-6W
Mr. Perkins

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will state the total number of cases in the areas covered by the Stroud, Nailsworth, Wotton-under-Edge, and Dursley employment exchanges in which there have been increases and decreases as a result of the new unemployment regulations?

Mr. E. Brown

The areas referred to form part of the Unemployment Assistance Board's administrative area of Gloucester. In that area at the latest available dates the number of increases was about 65o and the number of decreases was nil.
