HC Deb 18 April 1957 vol 568 c236W
Mr. Hayman

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance how many men registered as unemployed at any time since 2nd March at the Falmouth and Redruth employment exchanges, respectively, have been denied unemployment benefit, although dismissed by their employers as redundant before the recent trade dispute in the ship-repairing industry began.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

The only information available to me which bears on this matter is that in respect of these two exchanges, 1,779 men had unemployment benefit withheld under the trade dispute provisions of the National Insurance Acts.
