HC Deb 18 February 1944 vol 397 c506W
Mr. de Rothschild

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will give details of the expenditure of £266,000 on agricultural unemployment last year; what volume of unemployment this represents; and how many of the total number unemployed were out of work for less than one month, less than two months and less than six months, respectively.

Mr. E. Bevin

Information with regard to the first two parts of the Question would, I anticipate, be given in the annual Report of the Unemployment Insurance Statutory Committee which will shortly be available. The figures asked for in the last part of the Question are not available.
