HC Deb 20 June 1934 vol 291 cc371-2
27. Captain FULLER

asked the Minister of Health if he will consider the desirability of amending the National Health Insurance Act so as to include all persons within its scope who, on leaving school, will enter into insurable employment at 14 under the new Unemployment Bill?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to a similar question asked by the hon. Member for Westhoughton (Mr. Rhys Davies) on the 19th April last.


Is the hon. Member aware that a large number of associations which have considered this problem have recently decided to make representations to the Ministry on the urgency of bringing these children within the national insurance scheme; and will he look into this matter once again?


We shall certainly consider all representations that are made.
