HC Deb 19 April 1926 vol 194 cc863-4W

asked the Minister of Health whether he can arrange for the Registrar-General to publish an annual estimate of the number of occupied persons and the number of the latter insured under the National Health Insurance Act., and an estimate of the number not so insured on the ground of age only; and whether he can state the estimated totals for 31st December, 1925?


I have carefully considered my hon. Friend's suggestion, but I do not think that I can accept it as I doubt if the usefulness of the information in question would be such as to justify the cost in time and expense which would necessarily be involved in the process of obtaining it.
