HC Deb 01 January 1913 vol 46 c345
36. Mr. TOUCHE

asked whether the right hon. Gentleman can do anything to facilitate the payment of remuneration to secretaries of friendly societies and help to secure adequate recognition for the burden of work which has devolved on them in connection with the National Insurance Act?


It is for each approved society to determine in accordance with its rules what portion of the total amount available for administration expenses shall be devoted to remuneration of its secretary or other officers, and to make the payments accordingly.


Has the right hon. Gentleman no influence by counsel or advice?


It is a matter for the societies themselves within the limits of the money allowed for administration.
