HC Deb 07 August 1925 vol 187 cc1733-4W

asked the Minister of Health if, in view of the large surpluses being declared as the result of the second valuation of approved societies under the National Health Insurance Act, he is prepared to promote legislation with a view to the existing statutory contributions being reduced consistent with the present actuarial cost of the benefits provided by the societies under the provisions of those Acts?


The whole question of the contributions and benefits of the National Health Insurance scheme is now being considered by the Royal Commission on National Health Insurance and I must await their Report before forming any judgment on such questions as that asked by the hon. Member.
