§ Mr. Les Huckfield
asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will make a statement about the date of hear- 422W ing for the tribunal dealing with the application for unemployment benefit by Mr. Clive Wilson in the industrial dispute involving the Birmingham Post and Evening Mail.
§ Mr. O'Malley
I have been asked to reply.
Mr. Wilson's claim to unemployment benefit was disallowed by the insurance officer who is the first of the independent adjudicating authorities on 24th July. Mr. Wilson has been notified of this decision and of his right to appeal to a local appeal tribunal. In the event of his exercising this right, a local tribunal hearing would be arranged as soon as possible.
