HC Deb 13 January 1913 vol 46 cc1685-6W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give the House the figures of the total membership in England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales, respectively, and for the United Kingdom, as reported to the National Health Insurance Commissioners, of approved societies in connection with friendly societies, trade unions, particular firms or industrial concerns, and industrial insurance companies, respectively; and the figures of deposit contributors on the latest date for which the returns have been made up?


The classification of the contributors' cards with reference to the different types of societies from which they have been received is now being made. It is a very considerable task, and is not required for immediate administrative purposes. The work is, however, progressing rapidly, and the results will be published at the earliest possible date.
