§ 8. Lord Dunglass
asked the Minister of National Insurance how many insured persons in the first four months of 1950 have been disqualified for sickness benefit on the grounds of late intimation of sickness; and how many of these were in respect of first claims, for which a medical certificate was produced.
§ Dr. Summerskill
