HC Deb 01 April 1925 vol 182 c1296

asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been called to the fact that men in receipt of unemployment benefit become ineligible for such benefit after working as casual agricultural labourers; and will he, in view of the hardship that this causes to those men who are anxious to find work of any kind and of the serious shortage of casual labour which this causes in many agricultural areas, consider an amendment of the existing Regulations?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given to the hon. Member for Louth on 4th March, of which I am sending him a copy. I should perhaps add that this matter is governed by Statute, and not by Departmental Regulations.
