HC Deb 16 July 1912 vol 41 cc228-9W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury what is the position under the National Insurance Act of a caretaker and his wife who are paid a joint sum as wages for work rendered by both: and will it be necessary for the employer to pay the weekly sum for each of the two, or will the wife be exempted from the Act?


I am advised that in such a case both the caretaker and his wife must be insured.
