HC Deb 14 May 1924 vol 173 cc1335-6

asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that a man who refused to work overtime and was in consequence discharged from his employment was suspended from unemployment benefit for a period of six weeks, on the ground that he had refused work; and on what ground does his Department take such action?


My hon. Friend does not give the name of the man or his employer, or even the town where the man was suspended. If he will let me have particulars of the case to which he refers, I will have inquiries made and write to him on the matter.
