§ 16. Mr. Arthur Henderson
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that glassmakers employed by firms in Brierley Hill, Staffordshire, are restricted to working three days in the week and, although they sign on three days at the local Employment Exchange, they are only allowed two days' benefit per week; and whether he will take steps to ensure that they are allowed to draw three days' benefit per week in such circumstances?
§ Mr. E. Brown
The decisions in these cases are given by the statutory authorities in the light of the particular circumstances and I have no authority to interfere with them. There are, as the hon. Member doubtless knows, the usual rights of appeal.
