HC Deb 11 November 1912 vol 43 cc1733-4

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether his attention has been called to the representations made on behalf of the friendly societies which have formed approved societies for soldiers, sailors, and marines, that the sum allowed for administration expenses is totally inadequate to remunerate officers for the work that has to be performed under the National Insurance Act; and whether, in view thereof, some special allowance can be made?


I have only been able to trace one representation of the kind referred to in the question, and that is from a society which accepts soldiers and sailors as members of the society itself. As at present advised, therefore, I see no reason for amending the Regulations.
