HC Deb 29 July 1949 vol 467 cc179-80W
Mr. Hoy

asked the Minister of National Insurance whether he has yet received from the National Insurance Advisory Committee a report on the Provisional Overlapping Benefits Regulations in their application to persons in hospital.

Mr. J. Griffiths

Yes. Its recommendations, which I am accepting, are embodied in regulations which, together with the report, are being laid before the House immediately. This report completes the Committee's consideration of the question of overlapping benefits, and I should like to take this opportunity of paying tribute to them for the careful and thorough way in which they have dealt with a very difficult problem.
