HC Deb 27 January 1913 vol 47 c974

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will say, where the employer of an insured per son had notified the Insurance Commissioners previous to 15th July, 1912, that he adopted the provisions of Section 47, but the full contribution was paid during the succeeding three months, whether repayment will be made of the excess paid by the insured person; and why the Commissioners have refused to make repayment?


Where an employer after giving due notice under the provisions of Section 47 has paid contributions in error at the full rate in respect of persons to whom the notice relates, claims for a refund of the amounts overpaid have been admitted by the Commissioners. If the hon. Member has a case in mind in which the application for a refund has not been granted, and will furnish me with particulars I shall be glad to inquire into the matter.
