HC Deb 11 June 1912 vol 39 cc681-2
36. Mr. SANDYS

asked if the National Insurance Commissioners will issue regulations showing whether a British seaman who is employed for six months in each year as one of the crew of a foreign yacht flying a foreign flag, and for the remaining six months is employed by a British employer, would have to pay his employer's contribution under the National Insurance Act for the time during which he is employed by the foreign employer?


The position of such a person is clearly defined in the Act, and is not left to regulations. The seaman is not required by the Act to pay any contributions while serving on a foreign ship.
