HC Deb 23 February 1939 vol 344 c600W
Mr. Windsor

asked the Minister of Labour how many applicants in Kingston-on-Hull are now in receipt of winter allowance relief; and what percentage are applications for benefit?

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The latest date in respect of which information is avaliable is 21st November last. On that date, in the Board's administrative areas of Hull (1) and (2), the boundaries of which extend beyond the County Borough of Kingston-upon-Hull, the number of winter additions authorised was 2,651, equivalent to 43 per cent. of the number of assessments for unemployment allowances then current.
