HC Deb 27 March 1928 vol 215 cc1003-4W

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that persons in receipt of unemployed insurance benefit and following a subsidiary occupation ordinarily followed before unemployed in the insured industry, and in general sub- scribing to Section 7 (2) of the Unemployment Insurance Act, 1920, as regards the amount of remuneration received, are being threatened in one instance with suspension of benefit or prosecution unless the subsidiary occupation is given up; and will he draw the attention of his local officials to the provisions of the said Section?


I am not aware of any such case, but if the hon. Member has any case in mind in which he thinks the provisions of Section 7 (2) (a) of the Unemployment Insurance Act, 1920, have been misapplied, and will let me have particulars, I will have inquiries made.
