HC Deb 13 May 1926 vol 195 c978W

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that a man named Carr, a former storekeeper at the Llanbradoch Colliery, aged 65 years, who is paralysed on one side, was on 5th May summoned by telephone to the local Employment Exchange and instructed to enrol for railway patrol duty or forfeit his unemployment insurance benefit; whether such an order was given on the authority of his Department; and, if not, whether he will give instructions that such orders are not again issued?


I am having inquiries made into this case, and will let the hon. Member know the result as soon as possible.
