§ Sir W. de FRECE
asked the Minister of Labour how many cases have been recorded in the past six months in which unemployment donation has been refused to applicants on the ground that they have not been seriously trying to obtain employment?
§ Mr. SHAW
The number of claims to uncovenanted benefit under the Unemployment Insurance Acts which were rejected during the six months ended 12th May, 1924, in Great Britain, on the ground that the applicants were "not genuinely seeking whole-time employment" was 60,738, or about 5.3 per cent. of the 1,136,000 claims brought before the local employment committees during the period.
