HC Deb 23 November 1938 vol 341 c1782W
Mr. Windsor

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that during the recent municipal election in Hull a candidate offered employment to an unemployed man of the name of Ramsay on condition that he left the Labour party; that, upon the man's refusal to accept this condition, he was reported to the Exchange for having refused an offer of employment, whereupon his unemployment benefit was stopped pending consideration by a court of referees; that later the man was informed that the complaint had been withdrawn; and whether he will have prompt inquiry made into this case?

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I have been unable to trace the case to which the hon. Member refers. If he will let me have Mr. Ramsay's address I will make further inquiry.
