HC Deb 18 October 1912 vol 42 cc1599-600W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if stoppage of work owing to frost or other weather conditions will be considered as unemployment under the National Insurance Act?


Speaking generally, the answer is in the affirmative; but, of course, the workman must comply with the statutory condition that he is unable to obtain suitable employment, and he must be prepared to take such employment as is available.
