The paragraph reads:
Any three days of unemployment, whether consecutive or not, within a period of six consecutive days shall be treated as a continuous period of unemployment.
That is, after six days of the week have passed and a man has been three days unemployed, whether those days have been consecutive or not they shall be regarded as three unemployed days. That is one period. Then, the paragraph states:
And any two such continuous periods separated by a period of not more than six weeks shall be treated as one continuous period of unemployment.
That means that if within six weeks we have this event happening twice, you have six continuous days of unemployment which go to make up the nine. That is the position.
