§ 40. Mr. ASTOR
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will state whether a man employed in a charitable institution to look after a boiler, engine, and electrical plant is a person employed in mechanical engineering within the meaning of Part II. of the National Insurance Act, 1911?
The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Robertson)
From certain decisions given by the Umpire, of which I am sending the hon. Member copies, it appears that contributions are not payable under Part II. of the Act in respect of workmen wholly or mainly engaged in driving, tenting, or minding machinery of the nature described in the question.
