Written answers (Question to Minister for Social Protection)

Payment of jobseeker's allowance to the person concerned was disallowed as his weekly means from casual employment were in excess of the statutory limit. If he suffers a reduction in his level of employment he should re-apply for jobseeker's allowance.
