§ 16. Mr. Day
asked the Minister of Labour what steps Employment Exchanges take to inquire into the domestic circumstances of women to whom they offer seasonal employment at the seaside; and whether any special consideration is taken of cases of single women who have a mother entirely dependent upon them for household duties?
§ Mr. E. Brown
Circumstances of this kind are stated by the applicants themselves, without the necessity for special inquiry by the exchange. They are sympathetically considered, and, if a 1154 question of disallowance of benefit arises, the applicant, as the hon. Member knows, has the right of appeal to a court of referees.
