HC Deb 02 November 1911 vol 30 c1135W

asked the Chancellor whether, in reply to a deputation from, the National Farmers' Union and Scottish agriculturists which waited upon him on 4th July in reference to the National Insurance Bill, he stated that in the case of confined men in agricultural employment whose full wages are paid during periods of sickness, the payment of the sick benefit of 10s. per week should in his opinion go to the employer; and, if so, whether he proposes to put down an Amendment to this effect?


My right hon. Friend's proposals in this connection are explained in the White Paper circulated yesterday, to which I would refer the hon. Member.
