§ 41. Mr. CHARLES BATHURST
asked when it is proposed by the Government to lay their proposals as to the Insurance Benevolent Fund before this House?
§ 47. Mr. WORTHINGTON EVANS
asked the Prime Minister whether any and which of the proposed additional Grants in aid of National Insurance will require legislation; and whether it is proposed to postpone the Grant in aid of those who will suffer loss of benefits by reason of arrears until the early winter Session; and, if so, how the arrears regulations can be carried out in the meantime?
§ 66 and 67. Mr. WORTHINGTON EVANS
asked the Secretary to the Treasury (1) whether and when it is intended to bring in Supplementary Estimates for the proposed Grants to local authorities or insurance committees for the treatment of dependants of insured persons suffering from tuberculosis; which Department will present such Estimates; 1553 and whether legislation will be necessary to give effect to the proposals of the Government; and (2) whether and when it is intended to bring in Supplementary-Estimates for the proposed Grants to provide and train an adequate supply of nurses; which Department will present such Estimates; and whether legislation will be necessary to give effect to the proposals of the Government?
The Supplementary Estimate to the National Health Insurance Joint Committee Vote was laid before the House on Tuesday last. This Estimate embodies those proposals of the Government which do not require legislation.
§ Mr. CASSEL
As the hon. Member has answered the questions for the Prime Minister, is he not necessarily prevented from dealing with the question of a discussion?
§ Mr. WORTHINGTON EVANS
As my question, No 47, is to the Prime Minister, and as the hon. Gentleman obviously cannot answer a question upon the business of the House, may I be allowed to put it to the right hon. Gentleman?
