HC Deb 25 March 1912 vol 36 cc36-7

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether, in calculating the total remuneration of an insured person for the purposes of the National Insurance Act, the difference between the economic value of a cottage and the actual rent paid will be taken into account; and, if so, whether he can state the basis on which such economic value will be calculated?


Where any question arises as to the rate of contributions payable by, or in respect of, any insured person, the matter must be determined by the Insurance Commissioners in accordance with regulations made by them for the purpose under Section 66 of the Act. Where it is shown to their satisfaction that the actual rent paid is less than the economic rent, the difference will be taken into consideration.
