asked the Minister of Labour the number of persons in receipt of transitional benefit who have no dependants, those who are married, and those with one, two, three, four, five, and more dependent children in receipt of benefit; and will he give the number in each group separately?
The latest statistics as to the number of dependants of persons in receipt of transitional payments relate to the end of December, 1932, when particulars were obtained as a result of a sample inquiry covering one in 300 of the persons insured against unemployment. I am sending the hon. Member a copy of the issue of the Ministry of Labour Gazette for October, 1933, on page 360 of which these statistics are summarised.
