MARQUESS of TULLIBARDINE
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether the Christian Sunday, which is generally considered the first day of the week in this country and shown as such in the almanack, is considered, under the provisions of the Insurance Act, still to be the first day?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Masterman)
In paragraph 11 of the Third Schedule, the expression "calendar week" is defined as meaning, for the purposes of that Schedule, "the period from midnight on one Sunday to midnight on the following Sunday." In any question, therefore, as to who is the first employer during the week for the purpose of paying contributions under the Act, Monday is reckoned as the first day.
