§ Mr. Pearson
asked the Minister of Labour whether he will state the number of persons within the administrative area of the Pontypridd Employment Exchange who have received a reduction in unemployment assistance allowance by the liquidation of the standstill order for each
Date, 1938. Number of persons who on the dates shown in column (1) were in receipt of allowances which had been reduced under the arrangements for the transition from the Standstill otherwise than on account of personal earnings (b). Number of persons who on review of their cases in the four (or five) weeks preceding the date shown in column (1) were given "Nil" determinations I on account of the liquidation I of Standstill arrangements or otherwise (c). Column (1). Column (2). Column (3). 28th January … … … 206 7 25th February … … … 217 9 25th March … … … 281 6 29th April … … … 634 12(5 Weeks) NOTES.—(a) Information relating to Employment Exchange Areas is not available. The particulars in the table relate to the Unemployment Assistance Board's administrative area of Pontypridd which covers the Pontypridd and Taffs Well Exchange Areas. (b) A large proportion of individual cases in column (2) are included on more than one date. (c) It is not possible to distinguish between Nil determinations given in the process of liquidation and Nil determinations given in ordinary course. The figures in column (3) include therefore all "Nil" determinations given in the area during the period in question for whatever reason.
