59. MARQUESS Of TULLIBARDINE
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he has yet made any arrangements to prevent employers of members of the Special Reserve or Reserve not being able to obtain relief under the employment section of the National Insurance Act in respect to the refund of one-third of their payments?
§ Mr. BURNS
The point raised in the Noble Lord's question will be met by Clause 5 (3) (b) of the National Insurance Act, 1911 (Part II. Amendment) Bill, which secures that any contributions paid by the Crown, in accordance with Section 98 of the principal Act, in respect of a workman in training, shall for the purposes of a refund under that Section count towards the number of forty-five contributions required to have been paid by the employer by whom the workman was employed immediately before the training.
