§ 34. Mr. PERKINS
asked the Minister of Labour whether the Government propose to implement their Election pledge to introduce a scheme for voluntary insurance of black-coated workers?
§ The MINISTER of HEALTH (Sir Kingsley Wood)
I have been asked to reply. In their Election manifesto the Government undertook to introduce a scheme of voluntary pensions insurance for persons such as shopkeepers, clerks and other black-coated workers, outside the existing scheme whose incomes did not exceed a certain limit and the Government will of course implement that pledge. I would also refer my hon. Friend to a statement I made on the subject in this House on 10th December last.
