asked whether it is proposed by Amendment to allow companies such as the South Metropolitan Gas Company, as well as railway companies, to contract out under the National Insurance Bill?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
I must refer the hon. Member to the answer given on the 14th August to the hon. Baronet the Member for Wandsworth. I may, however, add that my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary has arranged to meet representatives of the South Metropolitan Gas Company this afternoon and discuss the position with them.
