§ 32. Squadron-Leader Fleming
asked the Minister of National Insurance whether trainees under the Emergency Training Scheme for teachers will be exempt from paying the full weekly contribution of 4s. 11d. under the National Insurance scheme.
§ The Minister of National Insurance (Mr. James Griffiths)
Yes, Sir, and a contribution is credited to such a trainee for each week of the course.
§ Squadron-Leader Fleming
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that in Manchester there are cases where students have had these contributions deducted, and will he look into the matter and see that they are repaid?
§ Mr. Griffiths
Yes. The Ministry of Education is now sending out individual notifications to all the persons concerned explaining fully to them their entitlement to credits.
