HC Deb 22 November 1917 vol 99 cc1354-5
58. Mr. T. C. TAYLOR

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether representations were made to the Cabinet that the National Health Insurance Bill now before the House is an agreed measure; if so, whether such representations were made before or after Clauses were inserted in the Bill which solvent societies regard as highly controversial and as calculated to endanger their expected benefits to their members; and whether, in view of the oposition to the special risks fund, the Government will eliminate it from the Bill and proceed with the uncontentious provisions which it contains


I can add nothing to my reply of yesterday on the same subject.


Has not the right hon. Gentleman seen the Comptroller of the Household, who pointed out that the Bill was practically agreed upon, and that he hopes to pass it?


That was the answer I gave yesterday, and that is my information.
