HC Deb 27 September 1944 vol 403 cc235-6
49. Mr. Kirby

asked the Prime Minister when the Government proposes to issue the promised White Paper on post-war Social Security; and will he make a statement.

Mr. Attlee

The first Part of the White Paper, dealing with the general scheme of Social Insurance, was published yesterday. The second Part, dealing with Industrial Injury Insurance, will be available to hon. Members later to-day.

Mr. Kirby

May I ask the right hon. Gentleman if he did not appreciate that I put this Question down some weeks ago before the White Paper was issued? May I further ask him whether the Government are giving every attention to the future of the approved society staffs who will become redundant under the new scheme? Can he promise on behalf of the Government that those staffs will be taken over by the State organisation or, alternatively, given compensation?
