– in the House of Commons on 25th July 1933.
asked the Minister of Labour how the number of insured persons now in employment compares with the number 10 years ago?
It is estimated provisionally that at 26th June, 1933, there were approximately 516,000 more insured workpeople in employment than at 25th June, 1923.
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is now in a position to give the comparative figures for each area in which is situated a sugar-beet factory, showing the number of applications made for transitional payments and the number of applicants refused benefit?
I am circulating in the OFFICIAL REPORT such information as I have been able to obtain on the question raised by my hon. and gallant Friend.
Shall I receive the information asked for showing the comparative position of my own constituency and others where sugar-beet factories are situated?
Perhaps my hon. and gallant friend will have a look at the very full report which I have got in answer to his question and which, I may say, involved an immense amount of labour.
Following is the information:
|SUGAR BEET FACTORY WORKERS, SEASON, 1932–33.|
|District||Number of claims for benefit or transitional payments since end of season.||Number of claims disallowed under Seasonal Workers Regulation.|
