HC Deb 18 October 1949 vol 468 c459
8. Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Minister of National Insurance if he is aware that under the approved society system societies arranged statistical data showing periodically the incidence of sickness and disablement among their membership, separating males and females for the purpose; and if he will give similar details showing any disparity between the statistics under the old and the new system.

The Minister of National Insurance (Mr. James Griffiths)

Arrangements have been made to collect and publish periodically comprehensive statistics of sickness experience under the National Insurance Acts. But comparison with the figures obtained under the old system will not be possible as detailed statistics were only available in respect of a few approved societies.
