HC Deb 22 November 1911 vol 31 cc1178-9

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will state the exact manner, under Clause 36 of the National Insurance Bill, in which seamen invalided out of the service will receive medical and sanatorium benefits on discharge; whether seamen who contract tuberculosis during service will receive full sanatorium benefits; and in what manner provision is to be made for the building of sanatoria?


The "exact manner" in which these persons will receive their benefits will be governed by regulations to be made by the Insurance Commissioners after consultation with the Admiralty and Army Council. The answer to the second part of the hon. Member's question is in the affirmative. As regards the last part of the question I will refer the hon. Member to Clause 47 of the Bill
