HC Deb 16 November 1936 vol 317 cc1322-3
37. Mr. JOEL

asked the Minister of Health whether, in the proposed legislation in connection with the extension of voluntary insurance to black-coated workers, it is proposed to limit such insurance to pensions or to include also insurance for health purposes; and whether the new system of pensions will need a separate fund from the one now in existence?


As regards the first part of the question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given on 19th March last to a similar question by the hon. Member for Kingswinford (Mr. A. Henderson) of which I am sending him a copy. As regards the second part, I am afraid I must ask my hon. Friend to await the introduction of the Bill.


Will the machinery of the approved societies be employed in connection with including these people?


I think the hon. Gentleman had better wait and see the Bill.
