HC Deb 29 May 1911 vol 26 c849W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether a stevedore engaging dockyard labourers on a Monday for a job will have for that day's work to deduct the 4d. per head from each workman's pay for the day and add his 3d. per head; and whether this payment of 7d. under the National Insurance Bill can be partly recovered from other possible employers later in the week?


The normal arrangement would be as indicated in the first part of the question. The Insurance Commissioners are, however, being empowered to make regulations on the subject, and I hope that it may be possible to make regulations suitable to each trade by agreement.
