HC Deb 30 November 1948 vol 458 cc1785-6
5. Mr. J. Langford-Holt

asked the Minister of National Insurance how many persons are employed in discovering and dealing with those who have not joined the National Insurance Scheme.

Mr. J. Griffiths

There is no staff specifically allocated to this duty. It is part of the duties of the staff of 750 Inspectors, which is approximately the same number as that of the staff employed for this purpose under the previous schemes.

Mr. Langford-Holt

Will the Minister say what is his estimate of the numbers who have not joined in this scheme?

Mr. Griffiths

That is a different question.
