HC Deb 25 February 1971 vol 812 cc192-3W
23. Mr. Greville Janner

asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will take steps to inform employers that, in the absence of agreement to the contrary, employees who are off work due lo illness or accident are entitled to their remuneration while their contracts of employment subsist.

Mr. Bryan

No. It may not necessarily be true that under present law, employees have such an entitlement.
