HC Deb 16 June 1938 vol 337 c427W
Mr. Pearson

asked the Minister of Labour how many applicants for unemployment assistance allowance in Glamorganshire and Monmouthshire are receiving full-scale determinations and how many reduced determinations?

Mr. E. Brown

I regret that information in the precise form desired by the hon. Member is not available. As regards cases in which there are resources it is estimated that in December last in about one-quarter of the 72,428 assessments current in the Board's administrative districts of Cardiff, Newport and Swansea (which include, though they are not coterminous with, the two counties) the applicant or a member of his household possessed resources which were partly taken into account to meet the applicant's needs. This does not include applicants whose allowances were adjusted solely by reason of casual earnings declared at the time of payment, nor does it include applicants who, on the basis of household resources available, were adjudged not to be in need.
