HC Deb 08 November 1966 vol 735 cc272-3W
Mr. Eldon Griffiths

asked the Minister of Labour what rise there has been over the last three months in unemployment in West Suffolk, in particular in Haverhill; and what change there has been over the same period in the number of unfilled vacancies.

Mr. Gunter

Following is the information:

has broken service in the industry and is not entitled to the full benefits under the Redundancy Payments Act at a subsequent redundancy, despite the fact that he has spent almost the whole of his working life in the industry; and if he will seek consultations with the Board with a view to clarifying this point.

Mr. Gunter

My officers have been in touch with the Board and it has been agreed that such breaks will not affect continuity under the Redundancy Payments Act.
