asked the Minister of Labour the number of cases in Lancaster and Morecambe, respectively, which, since the passing of the Unemployment (No. 2) Act, have been referred to the referees; how many of such cases have been decided in favour of the appellants; and in how many cases there has been a further appeal to the umpire under conditions A, B and C (1 and 2) of Section 5 of the Act, respectively?

Between 13th March and 12th May, 1930, 225 applications for unemployment benefit were considered by the court of referees for the Lancaster and Morecambe district, which includes Lancaster, Bentham, Carnforth, Galgates and Morecambe. Of these 97 were allowed, 121 were disallowed and seven were adjourned. I regret that statistics are not available showing the number of cases in which an appeal to the umpire was made.
