HC Deb 04 June 1913 vol 53 cc882-3

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether any scheme has yet been prepared under which the contributions paid by employers of persons exempted under the National Insurance Act shall be set apart for the benefit of those employed persons?


As I stated in reply to the hon. Member for Colchester on the 21st April, before a scheme for the disposal of the contributions referred to can properly be framed, it is necessary to possess further information than is yet available as to the average payments for exempt persons, and as to the proportion who cease to be exempt by becoming insured persons or ceasing to be employed or otherwise.
