HC Deb 12 December 1928 vol 223 cc2150-1W

asked the Minister of Labour whether any instruction has been given to the chairman of the Bournemouth courts of referees to insist that applicants for unemployment insurance benefit must carry a book into which must be entered a record of each place where application was made for work?


The answer is in the negative. In order that there may be no misunderstanding I may add that I believe that some chairmen have suggested to claimants that, in their own interests, they should keep a record of the applications they make for work. This, however, is not upon the instruction or suggestion of the Department.
