asked the Minister of Health when the Departmental Committee now considering the practicability of amalgamating unemployment and health insurance cards and administration will present its Report?
My right hon. Friend is informed that the Committee are making satisfactory progress with their consideration of the matters referred to them, but that they are not yet able to say when their report may be expected.
Will the hon. Gentleman accelerate the Report in view of the recommendations of the Geddes Committee for amalgamation on grounds of economy?
I will bring the matter to my right hon. Friend's attention.
