HC Deb 27 November 1912 vol 44 cc1279-80W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that the United Alkali Company, of Glasgow, refused to stamp their workmen's unemployment cards from the date of the National Insurance Act coming into operation until the end of the quarter, and that they then deducted the whole of the workmen's contributions from the week's wages; and whether, having regard to Section 101 of the Act, he proposes to take any action in the matter?


I am making inquiries into the matter referred to by my hon. Friend, and will communicate with him as soon as the results are known.
