82. Mr. Edward M. Taylor
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance if she is aware of the practice of refusing unemployment benefit to men and women dismissed solely because of their refusal to join a particular trade union; and if she will take steps to stop this practice.
§ Miss Herbison
Claims for unemployment benefit are decided by independent statutory authorities. I cannot intervene in their decisions, but if the hon. Member will send me details of any case he has in mind I will look into it.
