§ 26. Mr. ALAN TODD
asked the Minister of Labour whether he will suggest to the Unemployment Assistance Board that a special inquiry should be instituted into the working of the board's machinery in the Dudley area?
I am informed by the board that inquiries have been made and that the complaints at Dudley are not exceptional in kind or in volume. Out of 48 cases that have been heard by the appeal tribunal, the decision of the board's officer has been confirmed in 42 cases.
