§ Sir E. Graham-Little
asked the Minister of National Insurance whether he is aware that a number of citizens, while being prepared to pay the weekly contribution to National Insurance, have refused to apply for registration from conscientious convictions; and whether he will supply such persons with cards before subjecting them to the measures required by Regulation 1274 of 1948.
§ Mr. J. Griffiths
I am not aware of such objections. But if a person prefers to give the Department the particulars necessary to determine whether he is liable or entitled to pay contributions either in a letter or orally at a local office of my Department rather than by filling up the standard form of application, he is at liberty to do so.
