§ 106. Sir THOMAS BENNETT
asked the Minister of Labour whether a brick layer's improver trained under the Ministry's scheme, and provided with work at the prescribed rate, is entitled to resume unemployment pay from the Employment Exchange after throwing up his employment on the plea that he would be better off on unemployed pay?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of LABOUR (Major Boyd-Carpenter)
A person who left his employment for the reason given would 42 be disqualified for six weeks for the receipt of unemployment benefit. Should the facts be disputed there would, of course, be the right of appeal to the Courts of Referees and in certain circumstances to the Umpire. If the hon. Member will give be particulars of any case I will gladly have inquiry made.
