HC Deb 17 January 1990 vol 165 c285W
Mr. Madden

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will introduce the necessary amendments to enable those persons in full-time employment, who are laid off temporarily, to claim benefit in the manner available prior to changes in regulations recently introduced; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Gillian Shephard

We are monitoring the effects of recent changes to unemployment benefit rules on all those who claim. We have no plans to introduce special arrangements for this particular group.
