§ Mr. JAMES HOPE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what he estimates would he the approximate number of persons, other than employers, contributing to the insurance funds against unemployment and invalidity under the proposals adumbrated by the Government, and what would be the approximate amount of their contributions?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
It is estimated that 2,250,000 persons would contribute to the scheme for insurance against unemployment and about 15,000,000 to the scheme for insurance against sickness, invalidity, etc. I am not yet in a position to state what would be the amount of their contributions.
