HC Deb 25 October 1979 vol 972 c297W
Mr. Robert Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many cases there are of Vietnamese boat people receiving social security benefits where they have rejected offers of employment; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Chalker

This information is not available. I assure my hon. Friend, however, that Vietnamese refugees receiving benefit are subject to the same rules as anyone else, including withdrawal of benefit if work is refused unreasonably.
