§ Sir A. Wilson
asked the Minister of Health what was the proportion of the total cost of administration of the National Health Insurance schemes by approved societies, insurance committees, and central Government Departments for the last three financial years?
§ Mr. Elliot
The proportions of the total cost of administration of National Health Insurance in Great Britain incurred by approved societies, insurance committees and central Government Departments respectively have remained practically the same for the last three years. Taking the cost of administration at 100, this is distributed in the ratio of 73 to approved societies, 8 to insurance committees, and 19 to Government Departments.
