§ 15. Mr. Lunn
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that Mr. J. Milburn, an unemployed surface worker attending the Wakefield Employment Exchange, was given a green card and sent to Park Hills Colliery, Wakefield, in accordance with a request from the colliery manager for four surface workers; that he had been employed at the colliery previously and is regarded as a good workman; and that, when he, along with three others, applied to the manager for a job, he was turned down, the other men being given employment; can he state the reason for this man not being accepted for work; and what is his position with regard to unemployment benefit?
§ Mr. E. Brown
I am having inquiries made and will communicate with the hon. Member as soon as possible.
