HC Deb 18 July 1924 vol 176 cc759-60W

asked the Postmaster-General, in view of the great difficulty experienced in obtaining a first contribution card from the post offices in many areas by persons entering into insurance who have applied for admission to approved societies but have not yet been notified of acceptance into membership, will he state what are the instructions to post offices throughout the country as to the supply of contribution cards to insured persons?


The instructions to post offices provide for the issue of a current National Health Insurance contribution card to an employed contributor, on application. No case of difficulty in obtaining a card has come to my notice; but, if the hon. Member will supply the name of any office at which difficulty has arisen, I will have inquiry made.
