asked the Secretary of State for Employment what would be the net income of a married man with two children previously earning £65 gross a week, in the week beginning 28th February 1977, assuming that he was in receipt of unemployment benefit due to a trade dispute at his place of work in which he was not taking part or directly interested.
I will reply to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many British Leyland employees are in receipt of unemployment benefit as a result of the current disputes; and what proportion this represents of the total at present laid-off or on strike at the company.
Records of unemployment benefit payments are not maintained according to particular companies. I am sorry the information cannot be made available without incurring substantial administrative costs and requiring the diversion of staff from their pri- mary duty of processing benefit claims for unemployed people.
