HC Deb 20 November 1947 vol 444 c222W
Major Lloyd

asked the Minister of National Insurance what will be the position of Post Office employees under the new National Health Service scheme; and whether they will be required to pay contributions thereto.

Mr. J. Griffiths

Post Office employees, in common with all other citizens, will receive the benefits of the new National Health Service free. There are no contribution conditions, but part of the contribution payable by or in respect of each person insured under the National Insurance Act will be allocated to that Service.
