HC Deb 06 August 1912 vol 41 c2918

asked what benefits an employed person over sixty-five years of age on 15th July last, who is a deposit contributor, will be entitled to under the National Insurance Act; and which insurance committees have determined what these benefits are to be?


As the hon. Member is aware, the benefits to which a person over sixty-five on 15th July last who becomes a deposit contributor becomes entitled to are to be such as may be determined by the insurance committee. So far as I am aware, no insurance committees have yet come to any decision on this point, but the Commissioners propose to issue a circular letter making some suggestions in regard to these cases.
