JOBSEEKERS ALLOWANCE AND TERM-TIME ONLY WORKERS
EDM #219
Tabled 20 December 1999
1999-00 Session
That this House views with concern the refusal of the Benefits Agency to pay the jobseeker's allowance to term-time only workers, especially low paid workers in the education service, during the unpaid holiday periods; considers the money saved in the benefits system as insignificant, but crucial to many penalised individuals; and believes that the Government should urgently review this unfair and unjust anomaly as part of its anti-poverty strategy.
