HC Deb 02 December 1957 vol 579 c14W
86. Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance whether he will arrange for National Insurance contributions now paid at full rate by students employed part-time to be adjusted according to the number of days worked.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I think all part-time workers should be dealt with on the same basis. I hope shortly to lay regulations to increase to 8 hours for part-time workers the present 4-hour period of work which in any one week involves the payment of contributions as an employed person.
