HC Deb 15 July 1914 vol 64 c1905
65. Major HOPE

asked the hon. Member for St. George's-in-the-East, as representing the Insurance Commissioners, whether there is any limit to the percentage of the sanatorium benefit account for which insurance committees may take credit and expend on purposes of general administration expenses of the committees?


No part of the sanatorium benefit funds of an insurance committee may be applied to defray the cost of any administration expenses other than those actually incurred, either directly or indirectly, in the administration of sanatorium benefit. The amount so applied necessarily varies in different areas, but is in all cases subject to review by the Treasury auditors.

Major HOPE

Is it possible to keep the administration expenses of sanatorium and other benefits separate?


I do not think it is practicable to do so.
