asked the Minister of National Insurance if he will make a special order for the exception from compulsory insurance of part-time clerical assistants to head teachers.

Friend would not be justified in excepting it from compulsory insurance as a class of employment ordinarily adopted as subsidiary and not as the principal means of livelihood.
