§ 46. Sir JOHN MARRIOTT
asked the Prime Minister whether, if a Royal Commission be appointed to consider the problem of national health insurance, the Government is prepared to enlarge the reference so as to include the interrelated problems of unemployment, accident, widows' and children's pensions, and superannuation?
§ 48. Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
asked the Prime Minister whether a scheme is now being prepared to co-ordinate the existing insurance schemes with old age and widows' pensions and accident insurance?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I would refer the hon. Members to the answer given by the Lord Privy Seal on the 26th February, in reply to a question by the Noble Lord, the Member for South Nottingham (Lord H. Cavendish-Bentinck).
§ Sir J. MARRIOTT
Does the right hon. Gentleman realise that these questions are very closely inter-related and that a great deal of mischief has already arisen from treating them as isolated questions?
§ Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
Will the right hon. Gentleman appoint a Committee to deal with the question of insurance against unemployment, in connection with old-age pensions and widows' pensions?
