HC Deb 06 May 1914 vol 62 cc277-8W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that several classes of persons from whom contributions under the Insurance Act have been levied since the 1st. July, 1912, are now declared by the Insurance Commissioners to be outside the Act, and in their case contributions will cease, and that they can draw no benefits; if he will state what he intends doing with the moneys thus extracted from those persons and their employers; and whether he intends to return the employed persons' contribution to those persons?


Where contributions have been paid in respect of a person not required to be insured, the excess of the contributions over a sum equivalent to the liabilities incurred by the society in respect of him is, on application, repaid to the employer to be divided between him and the employed person.
