HC Deb 06 June 1924 vol 174 cc1602-3W

asked the Minister of Health whether the Interdepartmental Committee on Health and Unemployment Insurance (1922) is still in being; whether that Committee has presented any Reports since that dated 17th March, 1922; whether any further or final Report from the Committee may, be expected; and, if so, when?


The answer to the first part of the question is "Yes The Committee presented a third interim Report on the 23rd February, 1923. No further report has been prepared and it is doubtful whether the Committee can profitably resume its deliberations having regard to the fact that a Royal Commission is about to be appointed to investigate the working of the system of Health Insurance, and that modifications of the Unemployment Insurance Scheme are also under consideration.
