HC Deb 24 February 1938 vol 332 c568W
Mr. Mainwaring

asked the Minister of Health how many persons, having 10 or more years of insurance to their credit, have fallen out of this category since 1926 on account of their wages or salaries being raised above £250 per annum?

Sir K. Wood

I regret that the information desired by the hon. Member is not available in my Department.

Mr. H. Macmillan

asked the Minister of Health whether statistics showing the incidence of sickness among women and girls in the insured population of England and Wales are tabulated at the Ministry; whether these figures show the various age groups and the types of sickness; and, if so, will he have the figures made available to the public?

Sir K. Wood

The information referred to by my hon. Friend is not available in my Department and it could be obtained only by reference to the detailed records of the 7,000 approved societies and branches which administer health insurance benefits. I am, however, considering the general question of a comprehensive investigation into the extent and incidence of various forms of incapacitating sickness amongst insured persons of each sex and at various ages.
