HC Deb 02 November 1911 vol 30 c1135W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, under the National Insurance Bill, where, as in Notts, the wages paid to agricultural labourers in regular employment amount to considerably more than 15s. per week during six months of the year, and to less than such amount during the remaining six months, and on the average throughout the year exceed such amount, the contribution of the employer will, under Schedule 2, remain constant at 3d. per week, or whether it will vary according to the amount of the seasonal remuneration of his employés?


The employer's contribution is calculated on the rate of the wages actually paid during the days in respect of which payment is made.
