HC Deb 02 November 1911 vol 30 c1136W

asked whether, looking to the fact that boys under sixteen years of age who are insured in juvenile branches of friendly societies receive benefits during sickness, some benefit will be given to Post Office contributors of the same age, many of whom are bread-winners in the family?


No distinction is made by the Bill in this respect between boys who are members of approved societies and boys who are deposit contributors. The provision excluding persons under sixteen from sickness and disablement benefit has been omitted in Committee on the understanding that the House will take the position of these persons into consideration at a later stage.
