34. Mr. W. THOMAS
forMr. HAYDAY asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been called to a recent case where an unemployed man had his unemployment benefit stopped for the time he had served on a jury, for which he received ls. in 1841 remuneration; and whether, in view of the financial loss thus thrown upon a family suffering from unemployment, any steps can be taken to continue payment of benefit in such cases?
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
I am not aware that benefit has been refused in any case of the kind. In two cases recently payment of one day's benefit was suspended while the question of eligibility was decided. The amounts due were paid a week later
