§ Lieut.-Colonel HILDER
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that there is a desire among many insured persons in favour of combining health and unemployment insurance, and administering the combined benefits through approved societies;. and whether he will consider the advisability of giving this matter immediate consideration?
Sir A. MONO
The question of the relations between health and unemployment insurance and of the possibility of further co-ordination between the two schemes is at present under the consideration of a Committee appointed jointly by the Minister of Labour and myself, and, pending the receipt of the Report of this Committee, I am not in a position to make any statement on the questions raised by the hon. and gallant Member.
