asked the Secretary of State for Social Services why the new leaflets for guidance on rates of national insurance, NI208/April 1975, are not available in Glasgow offices as shown by requests recently made by interested parties, causing such persons to be unable to comply with statutory regulations.

I am sorry that, owing to distribution difficulties, copies of leaflet N1208 were not available in the Glasgow offices of my Department when the new contribution rates came into operation on 5th April 1975. The distribution began a week later and was completed in the week beginning 21st April. This leaflet was only one of many sources of information available, and its absence should not have caused anyone to fail to comply with his statutory obligation to pay national insurance contributions.
