§ 22. Mr. FELL
asked how many cases under the National Insurance Act the Commissioners have taken proceedings against persons in default in England, Scotland, and Ireland, respectively?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
No proceedings have been taken by the Scottish or Irish Commissioners; but in one ease in Ireland a prosecution was instituted by an insured person whose card had not been stamped. The English Commissioners have instituted proceedings in seventeen cases, some of which will shortly come before the High Court, on cases stated by the magistrates.
