HC Deb 01 April 1914 vol 60 cc1171-2

asked whether the borough committees in the county of London have only met once and in a few cases twice since January, 1913; whether the failure to do so is giving grave offence to the representatives of the friendly societies; when the next meetings are likely to take place; why the powers contemplated in the Act, in Section 60, are not given to the borough committees; and why the borough committees are not made a first, summary, and inexpensive Court of Appeal for all persons who have small grievances under the Act?


The question of the functions and position of district insurance committees in the scheme of administrative arrangements under the National Insurance Acts is one which presents considerable difficulties, and the matter is engaging my right hon. Friend's close attention.
