26. Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT
asked, in the case of a woman who joined an approved society and became an insured person on 15th July, 1912, who paid contributions until 25th March, 1913, when she married and was suspended from receiving ordinary benefit, and who did not become a married woman voluntary contributor, whether she is entitled to have two-thirds of her transfer value set aside for the purpose of making payments to her of 5s. a week during confinement during a period not exceeding four weeks on each occasion; and what is the amount of the total sum which would be set aside in such a case?
§ Mr. W. BENN
If my hon. Friend will furnish me with full particulars of the case which he has in mind I shall be pleased to send him the information desired.
§ Mr. WORTHINGTON EVANS
Is it not a fact that no reserve values have yet been credited to any women's society; and, until they have, is it possible to give them any such benefit?
Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT
Can the hon. Gentleman say whether, in the case of a woman who entered insurance at twenty-five, as stated here, two-thirds of her transfer value would be set aside fox the purpose indicated; and, if so what would be the amount?
§ Mr. W. BENN
No, I cannot add to the information given in the Act itself. There are several circumstances, as well as age, which would determine the amount.
