HC Deb 09 December 1931 vol 260 c1864
65. Captain CAZALET

asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been called to the case of Mr. A. L. Parkinson, who was in receipt of benefit for himself, wife, and two children totalling over 20s. a week; that on his appointment as clerk to the parish council of Sherston, for which he received a sum equivalent to 4s. 7d. a week, Mr. Parkinson has been deprived of the whole of his benefit; and whether he will inquire into this case?


As my hon. and gallant Friend has already been informed, this case has been decided by the appropriate statutory tribunal and my right hon. Friend has no power to review their decision.


Does not this case of grave injustice show that the law on these matters requires altering?


That is a fundamental question with which I cannot deal.
