§ 30. Mr. FELL
asked the Secretary to the Treasury if he is aware that friendly societies would be prepared to give to female domestic servants for a payment of 2d. a week the benefits they derive under the National Insurance Act; and if he proposes to reduce the payments under that Act or to increase the benefits when it is amended?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative; the answer to the second part, so far as the hon. Member suggests that it depends upon the first, does not therefore arise.
