§ 34. Mr. D. GRENFELL
asked the Minister of Labour the number of women who have been refused benefit by tribunals administering the Anomalies Act and the number of such women who have been refused benefit who continue to register as being available for employment?
Between 19th October, 1931, and 31st May, 1933, 237,252 claims by women were disallowed by courts of referees in Great Britain under the Anomalies Regulations. I regret that the statistics do not enable me to give the number of separate individuals whose claims were so disallowed, or the number who continue to register for employment after disallowance.
§ Mr. GRENFELL
Will the hon. Gentleman tell the House what is the difference in number and what has been the falling 1484 off in the number of women registered since disqualification?
