HC Deb 11 July 1922 vol 156 cc1078-9W
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?


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.
