HC Deb 12 November 1936 vol 317 c1055W

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will state the number of married women in Hull who have been refused unemployment benefit under the provisions of the Anomalies Act for the months of August, September, and October to the present date?


These statistics are normally compiled only for areas covered by Courts of Referees, and for periods of calendar months. The numbers of claims by married women disallowed by the Hull Court of Referees under the Anomalies Regulation relating to married women were 14 in August, 25 in September and 12 in October, 1936. The area covered by this Court of Referees includes the Employment Exchanges at Hull, Beverley, Bridlington, Driffield, Hessle, Patrington and Withernsea.
