HC Deb 25 March 1920 vol 127 c628W

asked the Minister of Health how much a year is deducted by the Insurance Commissioners from the contributions of the National Health Insurance Act and handed over to the Medical Research Committee; and how much of the amount is spent on salaries and wages?


No deduction is made from the contributions under the National Insurance Acts for purposes of research. The sums appropriated for research are paid out of moneys provided by Parliament. An account of the receipts and payments of the Medical Research Committee audited by the Comptroller and Auditor-General is submitted each year to Parliament with the annual appropriation account of the National Health Insurance Joint Committee. The account for 1918–19 will be found on page 347 or the Appropriation Accounts of Civil Service and Revenue Departments for 1918–19.
