§ MR. AIRD (Paddington, N.)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, If he will, during the Recess, consider the desirability of introducing a clause in the Employers' Liability for Injuries to Workmen Bill, to be introduced next Session, requiring the Government to institute an Insurance Fund for all Government employés, whether attached or otherwise (to which fund the Government should contribute), so as to secure provision in case of continued illness, and provision for the family in case of death?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. MATTHEWS) (Birmingham, E.)
The subject mentioned by my hon. Friend is one of much interest, and I shall have much pleasure in considering it; but I do not think it will be desirable to make any exceptional provisions for Government employés in the Employers' Liability for Injuries to Workmen Bill.
