HC Deb 13 February 1922 vol 150 cc638-9W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that a number of ex-service men employed in his Department as part-time auxiliary sorters for three nights a week, amounting to 12 hours altogether, are, by reason of the fact that they are employed on alternate nights, unable to qualify for unemployment insurance benefit, although they are compelled to pay insurance contribu- tions; and whether, in view of the fact that the Law provides for the payment of unemployment insurance benefit to part-time workers, he will make the necessary arrangements to enable these men to qualify?


I am having inquiry made in this matter and will communicate with the hon. Member.
