As already stated in the House on 17th February, the six week's extension of unemployment benefit is not to be granted to persons who are not prepared to accept on fair terms and conditions work other than that to which they have been accustomed but which they are reasonably capable of performing. This special condition does not apply to "covenanted" benefit under the permanent provisions of the Unemployment Insurance Acts, which remains governed by Section 7 of the 1920 Act, quoted in Clause 9 of the Circular U.I.A. 518 referred to by my hon. Friend.
