HC Deb 11 July 1955 vol 543 cc137-8W
61. Mr. J. Hynd

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance when it is expected that a new file of explanatory leaflets showing the change in the rates of National Insurance and other benefits will be available.

Mr. Peake

Two special leaflets giving the new rates of benefits were published in the middle of January last. The explanatory leaflets to which the hon. Member refers have been revised to include the changed rates of benefit and have been available in local offices of my Ministry since the dates on which the new rates came into force. I am sending the hon. Member an up-to-date set of these leaflets.

A booklet "Everybody's Guide to National Insurance," which includes the changed rates, was published last April, and a copy was sent to every hon. Member at the time.
