Mr. D. DAVIES
asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that certain employés of the Berwyn Granite Quarries, Limited, Llangynog, have been refused unemployment benefit by the Newtown Employment Exchange on the ground that in 1920 they were engaged on farm work; that these men have in most instances been employed continuously since 1920 by the quarry company; and that the latter have been unable to obtain any reply to their requests that if the men are ineligible for benefit the unemployment contributions should be refunded; and if he will inquire into the matter?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
I am having inquiries made in the case of the workmen referred to, and will communicate the result to my hon. Friend.
