§ Mr. Stonehouse
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many insured males in England have now exhausted their right to unemployment benefit; and if he will express this as a percentage of the total unemployed in England.
§ Mr. O'Malley
The number of registered unemployed males in England who at 3rd November 1975, the latest date for which information is available, had exhausted title to flat-rate unemployment benefit was 125,400. This represented 14.1 per cent. of the total number of registered unemployed persons in England at that date.
