HC Deb 27 June 1913 vol 54 cc1365-6W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether an applicant for unemployment benefit is compelled to state his age before benefit is granted; and, if so, will he say why this is required?


A workman claiming unemployment benefit is required, in accordance with Number 10 (1) (a) of the Statutory Regulations, to state certain particulars including his age upon his form of claim. The information is required for identification purposes, and is treated as strictly confidential.
