HC Deb 30 April 1951 vol 487 c108W
36. Mr. Wood

asked the Minister of National Insurance whether her regulations permit seasonal workers to receive benefit in the off-season if they are prevented by lack of accommodation from taking work away from their homes.

Dr. Summerskill

There are no special rules about difficulties arising from lack of accommodation, nor are these difficulties in any way peculiar to seasonal workers. The hon. Member's Question could only be answered in the light of the facts of a particular case and so far no case of this kind has come before the National Insurance Commissioner.
