HC Deb 11 November 1912 vol 43 c1734
17. Mr. FELL

asked the Secretary to the Treasury if he can now give an estimate of the number of persons insured under the National Insurance Act from the cards sent in, distinguishing the men from women, those in approved societies, and those in the Post Office?


The first quarter's cards are now being scheduled. It will be several weeks, however, before it will be possible to give the information desired by the hon. Member.


Did the extended time expire on 31st October, and have they now all been received?


Speaking from memory, I think the 28th October, but, of course, it is serious work to schedule and classify some millions of cards.
