HC Deb 22 February 1939 vol 344 c380W
Captain Elliston

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that men stopped from work as being diphtheria carriers or contacts are being denied unemployment benefit; and, as such denial encourages avoidance of precautions necessary to prevent the spread of infection, will he review this question?

Mr. E. Brown

I regret that the necessary inquiries in this matter are not yet complete. I will write to my hon. Friend as soon as possible.
