asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been drawn to the case of Miss A. C. Phillips, 17a, Wellington Road, Bow, whose claim for unemployment benefit has been disallowed at the Stratford Employment Exchange; whether he is aware that Miss Phillips, after several years of expensive education, secured a position as secretary and shorthand-typist; that in consequence of the death of her employer she lost her employment; and that because she has refused employment as a domestic servant, on account of her delicate health and her personal abilities, her claim for benefit has been disallowed; whether it is in accordance with the Regulations that benefit should not be paid in such Cases; and whether he will have further inquiries made into this matter?
