HC Deb 15 June 1933 vol 279 cc311-2
31. Sir W. JENKINS

asked the Minister of Health whether he will con- sider the advisability of taking steps to provide an all-in insurance scheme which will include national health, unemployment, old age pensions, and workmen's compensation?


Consideration has been given from time to time to a scheme of the kind suggested by the hon. Member, but the conclusion has been that the financial and administrative difficulties in replacing the existing schemes by such a scheme as the hon. Member has in mind are so serious as to outweigh any possible advantages. My right hon. Friend does not think that a further review of the subject would be likely to lead to any different conclusion.
