HC Deb 13 March 1952 vol 497 c160W
106. Mr. Viant

asked the Minister of National Insurance whether he is aware of the inability of a number of operatives who are members of courts of referees connected with his Department to continue to serve owing to the inadequacy of the present allowance for time lost; and if he will bring the allowance into line with the present day rates of wages.

Mr. Turton

My right hon. Friend is not aware of any general inability on the part of members of local tribunals to continue to serve for the reason given in the Question, but he is prepared to look into the matter if the hon. Member will let him have information bearing on the point.
