Every matter referred to in the Annual Report of the National Insurance Audit.

A copy of each such report is supplied by the National Insurance Audit Department to the appropriate central department, where the whole course of administration is under continuous surveillance, and, upon receipt of any report of a Government Auditor drawing attention to defects or irregularities of any kind, such steps are immediately taken as the circumstances of the case require.
