HC Deb 07 July 1913 vol 55 c21
40. Mr. FELL

asked what is the amount of the funds in the hands of the National Insurance Commissioners at the latest date available; if such funds have been invested in securities; and, if so, what are the securities?


The amount standing in the National Health Insurance Fund on 3rd July, 1913, was about. £14,000,000. For particulars of the securities in which moneys out of the National Health Insurance Fund have been invested, I would refer the hon. Member to the annual account presented to Parliament on the 27th May last in accordance with Subsection (6) of Section 54 of the Act, of which I will send him a copy.


Could the right hon. Gentleman give us any idea what the loss on this amount is owing to the depreciation of Consols?


The hon. Member had better give notice of that question.
