HC Deb 30 October 1918 vol 110 c1500W

asked the Comptroller of the Household, as representing the National Health Insurance Commissioners, whether he has received representations as to the inadequacy of weekly allowances under the National Insurance Act, 1911; and whether he will institute an inquiry as to further legislation to recast the finances of the Act and bring them more into line with the altered level of wages and standards of living?


Any general increase in the rates of benefit under the, National Insurance Acts would involve a corresponding increase in the contributions either of the employers or of the employed or of both, and I have no reason to believe that there is any general desire for legislation which would have any of those effects.

Forward to
