§ Mr. Ridley
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance, how much has been collected on behalf of unemployment benefit, sickness benefit, and industrial injuries benefit, respectively, through the National Insurance stamp, in the 10 years from 1955 to 1965.
§ Mr. Pentland
Contributions from employers and employees to the Industrial Injuries Fund amounted to £571 million. It is not possible to give corresponding figures for the contributions towards unemployment benefit or sickness benefit 349W because, from 1961, contributions under the main National Insurance Scheme have not been built up from separate elements relating to the different benefits of the scheme.
