HC Deb 01 August 1912 vol 41 cc2250-1

asked if the right hon. Gentleman can say what will be the position under the National Insurance Act, of the sanatorium established by voluntary effort in county Clare; will the promoters of this institution be assisted by the fnuds of the insurance scheme for sanatoria; and will any credit be allowed for the money already spent on the sanatorium in Clare?


With regard to the first part of the question, if the sanatorium referred to is approved by the Local Government Board for Ireland, it will be competent for insurance committees to make arrangements with the managers of the sanatorium for the treatment therein of insured persons suffering from tuberculosis, for which insurance committees will make payment. The last two parts of the question are within the province of the Local Government Board for Ireland, who are primarily responsible for the distribution of the capital Grant available under Section 16 of the Finance Act, 1911, and Section 64 (1) of the National Insurance Act; and I would suggest that my hon. Friend should put down a question to my right hon. Friend, the Chief Secretary.

Forward to
