§ Mr. JAMES HOGGE
asked the total number of assured persons in Scotland; how many of these are directly under the control of the Scottish Commission; how many will be valued for purposes of the triennial valuation outwith Scotland; and how many assured persons in other parts of the United Kingdom will be valued for such purposes in Scotland?
§ Mr. WEDGWOOD BENN
The total number of insured persons in Scotland is approximately 1,494,000; with the exception of 40,197 deposit contributors, all of these obtain their benefits through approved societies, and, in the event of a dispute, have an appeal to the Scottish Commission. The other information asked for cannot be given until the necessary investigations under Section 16 of the National Insurance Act, 1913, have been completed.
