HC Deb 22 March 1923 vol 161 cc2803-4W

asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that dependants' benefit is now being refused by the Leyton and Walthamstow Exchange to a married man with two children who is living in lodgings in Walthamstow and is seeking for a house or rooms to bring his wife and two children to from a place outside Walthamstow where they are now living owing to his inability to obtain accommodation for them in the town; and that the man is being treated as a single man, though he has not deserted his family, and is deprived of any benefit for his dependants, a benefit for which he has had to pay contributions; and will he have this case inquired into?


I shall be glad to have inquiries made into this case if the hon. Member will furnish me with the applicant's name and address.
