Mr. SILVESTER HORNE
asked what modifications, if any, in the qualifications of approved societies will be made in the National Insurance Bill to allow the industrial insurance societies and companies to qualify as approved societies under the Bill?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
Industrial insurance companies and collecting societies are engaged not on health insurance but almost exclusively on life insurance, and evidently could not assist, as they are, in the administration of the National Health Insurance. But, of course, if they are prepared to create self-governing organisations capable of administering the National Health Insurance on the principles adopted in the Bill, the Government will welcome their assistance.
