asked the Minister of Labour whether he will inquire into the circumstances of the case of J. G. S. Holbrook, of I, Richmond Terrace, Pear Tree Road, Derby, who was employed at the Rolls-Royce Works, Derby, until November, 1920, when he was sent to work as a labourer by the Exchange constructing drains, etc., from February to May, 1921, his card being stamped by himself during that period, but which the Derby Employment Exchange refuse to allow him to deposit, as a consequence of which he is refused employment on the relief schemes and has been advised by the manager of the Exchange to apply for a refund of his insurance contributions, which have not yet been paid to him; and whether he will take such action as will ensure justice being done in this case?
