HC Deb 02 April 1936 vol 310 c2133
69. Dr. LEECH

asked the Minister of Health whether in view of the recommendations of the commission on the State insurance scheme that the wage limit for insured persons be raised to £350 per annum, it would be possible to take steps to extend the privilege of voluntary insurance to all workers earning above that figure?


There has been no recommendation relating to health and pensions insurance on the lines indicated by my hon. Friend, but I would refer him to the reply which I gave to a question asked by my bon. Friend the Member for Stroud (Mr. Perkins) on 23rd March with regard to the Government's proposed extension of the contributory pensions scheme on a voluntary basis.
