HC Deb 07 November 1921 vol 148 cc65-6W

asked the Minister of Labour the result of his inquiries into the delay of several weeks in the payment of unemployment benefit at Cowes?


A number of claims were unfortunately delayed owing to abnormal pressure whilst others were held up owing to the non-receipt of particulars which applicants and employers had been asked by the Exchange to furnish. The position is now greatly improved, and a special inspection will be made at an early date in order to ensure that all avoidable causes of delay are removed.
