HC Deb 10 February 1969 vol 777 cc214-5W
Mr. Oakes

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will amend the National Insurance Regulations so as to provide for a contribution stamp free of charge to be allowed for insured persons who are unemployed because of compulsory jury service.

Mr. Swingler

No. Many employed persons already have contributions paid for them in the normal way through their employers while they are on jury service; in other cases there are the compensatory allowances payable to jurors by the courts to fall back on.
