HC Deb 08 March 1926 vol 192 cc1949-50W

asked the Minister of Labour to whom the court of referees recommends either payment or refusal of benefit to an unemployed person?


Section 11 (2) of the Unemployment Insurance Act, 1920, provides that the court of referees shall make their recommendations to the insurance officer. The same sub-section and Section 11 (3), as amended by the Unemployment Insurance (No. 2) Act, 1924, further provide that the insurance officer shall, unless he disagrees, give effect to the recommendations of the court of referees, or, if he disagrees, shall refer the recommendations with his reasons for disagreement to the umpire.
