HC Deb 23 April 1913 vol 52 cc353-4
74 and 75. Mr. GOLDSMITH

asked the Secretary to the Treasury (1) if his attention has been called to the case of Miss Jeannie G. Grey, of Cavenham, Suffolk, F29/16,136, who, although she has paid her full contributions under the National Insurance Act, has been unable to obtain sick benefit, to which she became entitled on 24th January; and will he explain why it is being withheld; and (2) whether his attention has been called to the case of John Kerry, No. 4 in Registered Society No. 123, who, although he has paid twenty-six weeks' contributions, has not been able to obtain any sick benefit under the National Insurance Act; and whether he can state why it is being withheld?


No communications have been received by the Insurance Commissioners with reference to these cases. The particulars contained in the questions are not sufficient to enable the insured persons to be identified, but if the hon. Member will furnish me with their addresses and the names of the societies and branches of which they are members, I will cause inquiries to be made.
