§ 53. Mr. RILEY
asked the Minister of Labour the amounts contributed to the Unemployment Insurance Fund, respectively, by employers, workpeople and the State for the years 1922–23, 1923–24 and 1924–25; and the amounts received in benefit by unemployed persons and the cost of administration for the same years?
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
As the reply contains a number of figures, I will, if I may, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Lieut.-Colonel GADIE
Will the right hon. Gentleman, in dealing with these figures, take into account the fact that money was voted last week in this House for the purpose of an exhibition, and that articles are being sold in that exhibition this morning marked "Made in Germany"? I have one in my possession.
§ Following is the reply:
§ The amounts contributed to the Unemployment Insurance Fund by employers, workpeople and the State, respectively, the amount received in benefit by unemployed persons, and the cost of administration (including the cost of Employment Exchanges so far as insurance work is concerned) for the years 1922–23, 1923–24 and 1924–25 are approximately as follow:
|Insurance Year.||Employers.||Work people.||Exchequer.|
|Insurance Year.||Benefit.||Cost of Administration.|
