HC Deb 06 April 1933 vol 276 c1894

asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware of the practice of certain chairmen of courts of referees who ask applicants appearing before them before their case is heard if, in the event of the decision being against them, they intend to appeal to the umpire; and whether, seeing that the question put in such circumstances savours of intimidation, he will instruct chairmen to ask the question, if necessary, after a decision has been given and not before?


The procedure in this matter has not been prescribed, but if my hon. Friend has any cases in mind perhaps he would be good enough to let me have particulars.
