HC Deb 06 March 1939 vol 344 cc1763-4W
Sir A. Wilson

asked the Minister of Health whether National Health Insurance Funds are credited with the cost of salaries of members of his staff who are normally employed upon National Health Insurance business but are now engaged upon other work of national importance; and how many persons have been thus temporarily transferred?

Mr. Elliot

Expenses incurred by Government Departments in the administration of the National Health Insurance Acts are defrayed from moneys provided by Parliament, except in the case of certain specific services the cost of which is chargeable to the National Health Insurance Funds. The amount so charged is limited to the cost of the salaries and expenses of the officers actually engaged on those services.
