HC Deb 21 June 1916 vol 83 cc136-7
11. Mr. CURRIE

asked the Comptroller of the Household, as representing the National Health Insurance Commissioners, whether he has observed that the Investigation Committee in its recent Report describes its proposals as a scheme to bring about6 the financial soundness of the National Insurance system; and whether, in view of the anxiety likely to be caused by a statement of this kind, implying, as it clearly does, a measure of existing insolvency, he will say whether the Government has in its possession detailed evidence on which the language used by the Commissioners is founded?

Mr. C. ROBERTS (Comptroller of the Household)

The hon. Member will, I think, find that the facts on which the recommendations of the Committee were based are fully set out in their Report.
