§ 4. Mr. Garro Jones
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that benefit is refused by the Unemployment Assistance Board to Aberdeen employés who decline employment across the seas, at Kirkwall, on Government navvying work; and whether he can take any action to secure that, having regard to the extreme inclemency of the winter weather in that area, payment will be made for time during which it is impossible to work owing to the weather?
§ 5. Mr. Lawson
asked the Minister of Labour whether it is the intention that the provisions of the Unemployment Insurance Act, 1939, relating to the treatment of holidays in connection with unemployment benefit and the consequential change in the continuity rule shall come into operation next January?
§ Mr. Lawson
On this very important matter, will the Minister give proper notice of these provisions coming into operation?
