HC Deb 17 October 1939 vol 352 c713W
Mr. Ede

asked the Minister of Labour whether in view of the short time being worked in many mining areas, he will, during the present emergency, modify the law with respect to the three-days' waiting period and the provision as to what constitutes continuous employment?

Mr. E. Brown

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to a question on a similar subject by the hon. Member for Blaydon (Mr. Whiteley) on 12th October.
