§ Mr. Longden
asked the Minister of Social Security what benefit a married woman who is employed for half a day obtains from her employer's weekly contribution of 14s. 4d.
§ Miss Herbison
The benefit for which a married woman qualifies under the National Insurance Acts depends on the contributions paid by her and her husband and not upon the employer's contribution. As far as the employer is concerned, if a woman is employed for eight hours or less in a week the only contribution payable in respect of her is the Industrial Injuries contribution of Is. Id. made up of 6d. by the woman and 7d. by the employer.
