§ 1. Mr. OSWALD LEWIS
asked the Minister of Labour whether he will consider the possibility of greater discretionary powers being granted to local courts of referees with regard to the payment of unemployment benefit to seasonal workers?
§ The MINISTER of LABOUR
(Mr. Oliver Stanley): I propose to ask the Unemployment Insurance Statutory Committee to examine the regulation relating to seasonal workers and to advise what amendments, if any, are desirable. At the moment the committee have a number of urgent matters under consideration, but they will be asked to deal with this question as soon as is practicable.
