HC Deb 16 June 1913 vol 54 c15
16. Mr. W. THORNE

asked the Secretary to the Treasury if he is aware that labourers employed in the Great Central Railway Company's fitting shop at Grimsby had unemployment insurance books issued to them when the National Insurance Act came into operation, which were subsequently withdrawn, and that the books have now been reissued, and the company intend to stop all back contributions in one sum from the workmen's wages; and whether the action of the company has the sanction of the Treasury? The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Robertson): I will make inquiries into the case to which my hon. Friend refers, and will communicate the result to him in due course.
