HC Deb 17 October 1972 vol 843 cc8-9W
40. Mr. Bryant Godman Irvine

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will take steps to make the stamping of national insurance cards by married students compulsory.

Mr. Dean

No. All full-time students over 18 can pay contributions voluntarily if they wish to. It would be wrong to create a liability for married students only, which would be difficult to enforce.
