§ 21. Mr. SHINWELL (for Mr. T. WILLIAMS)
asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been drawn to the case of G. Dyson, Fryston Road, Airedale, whose wife has been denied dependant's allowance because she has a lady boarder; whether such a decision is universally applied; and what is the minimum payment of a boarder that is held to prevent such a person receiving dependant's allowance?
§ Mr. BETTERTON
I am aware of the facts of this case. The governing decisions of the Umpire are Nos. U.D. 2789/28 and U.D. 2972/1928, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy.
