HC Deb 04 August 1939 vol 350 cc2837-8W
Mr. White

asked the Prime Minister whether, in connection with the forthcoming investigation into old age pensions, he will call for a report from the Unemployment Insurance Statutory Committee as to the advisability of reducing the contributions of employers and employed persons to the Unemployment Insurance Fund, with a view to the transference of some part of the contributions to old age pensions insurance?

The Prime Minister

No, Sir. The contributions under each of the State Insurance Schemes should, in my view, be considered solely in relation to the needs of the particular scheme.
