asked the Minister of National Insurance in what places in Westmorland he intends to set up local offices in order for national service since 1st January, 1947.

I have been asked to reply. The required analysis for 30th June, 1947 is as follows:to administer the new National Insurance Scheme.

Subject to premises being obtained, I am proposing to start with local offices at Appleby, Kendal and Windermere. There will also be offices in the adjacent counties which will be conveniently situated for certain districts of Westmorland, namely, at Penrith, Keswick, Barnard Castle, Ulverston and Barrow. In addition, I am examining the need for special arrangements in the sparsely populated areas.
