HC Deb 27 January 1913 vol 47 c973

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that the stationmaster at Hunwick, North Eastern Railway, upon stamping a number of employés' insurance cards for the week ending Monday, 9th December, 1912, endorsed the cards with the words "on strike"; and, having regard to the fact that this is a breach of the instructions of the Commissioners and an interference with the privacy of insured members, and must necessarily prejudice a man when seeking employment by the card being so endorsed, he will say what action he proposes to take?


The Regulations governing the collection of contributions under the National Insurance Act require that no mark shall be made on a contribution card except as expressly provided. I am communicating with the North Eastern Railway Company in regard to the matter referred to in the question.
