§ Mr. BROMFIELD
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that about 100 men are employed getting outcrop coal near Harriseahead, North Staffordshire; and what steps are taken to see whether the person, or persons, employing these men stamp their health insurance and employment cards?
§ Sir K. WOOD
My right hon. Friend is aware that a number of men are getting coal as stated in the question, but according to the information in his possession they are not employed under a1060W
contract of service, and consequently health and unemployment insurance contributions are not required to be paid.
