§ Colonel DAY
asked the Minister of Labour on what evidence the Court of Referees decided, on the 29th June, that Mrs. G. L. May, of 27, Danson Road, Southwark, S.E., Borough Exchange, was not genuinely seeking employment, in spite of the fact that this claimant informed the Court of the places and situations she had sought; and, in view of the fact that this woman has paid unemployment insurance contributions since 1920, and this is her first claim for benefit, will he have this case referred to the Umpire?
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
The evidence at the hearing in question was the appellant's own statement of her efforts. She attended in person, but failed to satisfy the Court, which did not give leave to appeal to the Umpire. I regret that I cannot intervene.
