HC Deb 06 August 1924 vol 176 c2901
18. Sir C. STARMER

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that Mr. J. Harding, of 33, Pease street, Lingdale, Brotton, Yorkshire, had his unemployment benefit stopped for three weeks because he was forced to give up a job away from home by reason of the fact that the wages were only 37s. 2d. per week, which wages were insufficient to keep him and his family; that the Court of Referees disallowed this man's appeal against the stoppage; and whether he will consider introducing legislation to prevent stoppages under similar circumstances?


I am having inquiry made into this case and will communicate the result to the hon. Member.
