HC Deb 23 October 1984 vol 65 c563W
Mrs. Beckett

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what restrictions he imposes on the entitlement to sickness benefit for those who were, prior to their sickness, involved in a trades dispute; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Newton

Questions on entitlement to sickness benefit are determined by the independent adjudication officers, under the terms of the Social Security Act 1975.
