§ Sir KINGSLEY WOOD
asked the Secretary to the Local Government Board, as representing the National Health Insurance Commissioners, whether any addition has been made to the administration allowance under the National Insurance Act on account of the increase of cost of stationery and the like; and whether the matter has been considered by the Advisory Committee?
§ Major ASTOR
The question of the need for an increase in the present maximum sum available to approved societies for purposes of administration has been engaging the attention of the Insurance652W Commissioners for some time past. If it should be established that an increase is required, the matter would have to be considered in connection with the question of the revision of the rates of contributions and benefits which has already been submitted to the Advisory Committee.
