HC Deb 27 February 1912 vol 34 c1323W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he proposes to include copies of the explanatory leaflets which he intends to issue in the memorandum which is being prepared in connection with the work of the National Health Insurance Commissioners?


The request for the White Paper is urgent, and I hope to circulate it to-day. No explanatory leaflets have yet been issued, and therefore they cannot be included.


asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the general anxiety on the part of those who wish to form approved societies under the National Insurance Act, he can give a date for the issue of the model regulations prepared by the Insurance Commissioners; and whether, in view of the prevailing ignorance of the provisions of the Act, the explanatory leaflets promised by the Insurance Commissioners will be issued immediately?


With reference to regulations to be made under the National Insurance Act, I beg to refer the hon. Member to my answer to the hon. Member for Salisbury on the 19th February. If, however, the hon. Member refers to the model rules for guidance of approved societies, these rules have now been received from the printer, and will be issued as speedily as possible. The work of preparing explanatory leaflets is proceeding with all possible despatch.
