HC Deb 14 December 1927 vol 211 cc2295-6

asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been called to the fact that the late firm of W. Tasker and Sons, Limited, of Andover, now in liquidation, failed to stamp the insurance cards of their workmen although they deducted the money from the men weekly; that many of these men have in consequence been unable to obtain the relief to which they were entitled; and whether he will consider the adoption of some means to prevent such irregularities in future?


An inspection of this firm in 1926 disclosed that, whilst the great majority of the unemployment books of the firm's employés were properly stamped, a relatively small number were not fully stamped. So far as I am aware, however, no employé of the firm has suffered loss of unemployment benefit through failure on the firm's part to pay contributions. Every effort is made to ensure compliance with the Unemployment Insurance Acts by means of inspection and otherwise.
