HC Deb 11 June 1951 vol 488 cc168-9W
105. Mr. Dye

asked the Minister of National Insurance how many of the women farm workers who have been classified as seasonal workers, and whose application for unemployment benefit has been refused during the winter months, have worked regularly for not less than nine months of the year and at least 12 days during the off season; and on what grounds women workers who have worked for such periods have been classified as seasonal workers.

Mr. B. Taylor

I regret that the records do not enable me to give the numbers of women whose claims have been disallowed in the circumstances mentioned. But any woman who thinks her claim has been wrongly disallowed should seek leave to appeal in accordance with the procedure laid down.
