HC Deb 06 June 1921 vol 142 c1540W

asked the Minister of Health whether he proposes, at an early date, to give effect to the Report of the Departmental Committee on approved societies' administration allowance; and, if so, whether in so doing he will consider favourably a reconsideration of the proposed allowance of 5d. per annum in view of the fact that, since that recommendation was made, the Government has imposed an additional charge of 2d. per annum on friendly and trade union approved societies whose business it is to despatch health insurance cards and record cards to insured persons through the post?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. In making their recommendations the Committee proceeded on an assumption that a further increase in the postal charges would be made.
