§ 21. Lord NINIAN CRICHTON-STUART
asked whether the National Insurance Act Amendment Bill will contain any proposals for death benefits?
§ 22. Lord NINIAN CRICHTON-STUART
asked whether it is proposed to introduce into the Amending Bill to the National Insurance Act any provision for an increase in the allowance for administration expenses, seeing that there is discontent amongst industrial insurance agents at being compelled to work the Act and distribute the benefits for a mere nominal allowance by the management committees of the approved societies formed by their respective assurance companies and collecting societies?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
The emuneration[...] paid to agents for such work as they do for the National Insurance Act in addition to their normal work is a matter between themselves and the societies employing them. With regard to the amounts allowed for administration expenses I would refer the Noble Lord to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Salisbury yesterday.
§ 49. Mr. WEIGALL
asked the Prime Minister when the National Insurance Amendment Bill will be introduced?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)
As I stated yesterday, we hope to introduce this Bill in a few days.
