Sir J. D. REES
asked the Minister of Health if he will state, approximately, what charge upon the State has been made in 1920–21, and what is expected in 1921–22, under the heads of Health Insurance and Unemployment Insurance; and what are the corresponding figures for the contributions of employers and employed?
§ Sir A. MOND
As respects Health Insurance in England and Wales, the total charge upon the State for the year 1920–21 was approximately £9,500,000, and for the year 1921–22 is estimated to be2266W £9,000,000. The corresponding figures for the contributions of employers and employed were in 1920–21 approximately £21,400,000 and in 1921–22 are estimated at £21,600,000. As regards Unemployment Insurance, I suggest that my hon. Friend should address a question to the Minister of Labour.
