§ Mr. LEES SMITH
asked whether, in the circumstances provided for in Section 56 of the National Insurance Bill, the contributions received by approved societies on behalf of the employed contributor would not be diminished by the amount of the employers' contributions; and whether these societies would still be required to pay such employed contributor the minimum benefits; and, if not, whether any provision is made in the Bill to meet the case?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
Clause 56 provides for the diminution not of the employer's contribution under the National Health Insurance, but of the employer's contribution under the Act on deed establishing an employer's superannuation fund which provides similar benefits. The latter portion of the question does not arise.
