§ Mr. ASTOR
asked whether the expenses of administration authorised by Clauses 41, 42, and 43 of the National Insurance Bill, including the salaries of commissioners and other officers, are to be paid out of the funds provided under Clause 3, or out of moneys to be provided in addition by the taxpayer.
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
The expenses authorised by Clause 41 will be defrayed in accordance with that Clause from voted moneys and not out of moneys under Clause 3. No expenses are authorised by Clause 42. Expenses of local Health Committees under Clause 43 are provided for by Clause 45, dealing with the income of the committees.
