HC Deb 30 November 1948 vol 458 c1784
2. Colonel Ropner

asked the Minister of National Insurance whether he is aware of the delay which contributors to the National Health Scheme are experiencing in obtaining payment of sickness benefits; and whether he will take steps to ensure that applications for benefits are dealt with more speedily by his Department.

Mr. J. Griffiths

I am not aware of any general delay in the payment of claims to sickness benefit. I am writing to the hon. and gallant Member about one case which he has raised with me.
