HC Deb 12 May 1936 vol 312 cc211-2W

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that Tom Rennison, of 11, Priory Road, Lunswood, Barnsley, was in receipt of 34s. per week dole on 27th February; that his son then began working three days a week at Woolley Colliery at a wage of 7s. 10d., of which, after paying omnibus fares, he only took home 6s. 4d.; that Rennison's dole was then reviewed and reduced to 20s. weekly for himself, his wife, and three other children; and will he make inquiries into this case?


I am informed that the Unemployment Assistance Board are making inquiries. I will communicate with the hon. Member when the result is known.
