§ Mr. MOUNT
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that in the official explanatory leaflet, No. 6, issued by the National Health Insurance Commissioners, no mention is made of the fact that a cottage let at a rent less than the economic rent will be included in the calculation of the remuneration on which the amount of the workman's contribution to the Insurance Act is based; and whether, in view of the fact that a cottage let at a rent less than the economic rent would often bring a workman's contribution from the lower rate to the ordinary rate, he will see that this leaflet is amended and attention drawn to this fact, in order to prevent misunderstanding and disappointment?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
The hon. Gentleman has overlooked the statement in the first paragraph of page 2 of the leaflet, where it is definitely stated that "remuneration means wages and the value of other things a workman may receive" I see no reason for the alteration of the leaflet referred to.
