HC Deb 20 April 1939 vol 346 cc484-5
26. Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the known pressure of some employers to induce young employés to join certain approved societies, he will consider altering the regulations whereby such young persons may be allowed at least six months to transfer from one society to another without payment of fee?

Mr. Bernays

A juvenile contributor who wishes to transfer his membership from one society to another may do so on payment of a fee of 6d. The question of allowing a juvenile contributor to transfer without payment of a transfer fee has already been noted for consideration, but amending legislation would be necessary.
