HC Deb 24 July 1984 vol 64 c617W
Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will ensure that employees who terminate their positions because of pregnancy are not denied state benefits once their names are removed from their employers' books whether a dispute is in process or not.

Mr. Alan Clark

No. Entitlement to state benefits is decided by independent adjudicating authorities. I cannot intervene in this process.
