Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Insurance Committees' Funds.

asked the Minister for Local Government and Public Health to state—or, if the actual figures are not available, to give an approximate estimate of— (a) the amount of the aggregate surplus or deficiency, as the case may be, standing to the credit or debit, respectively, of the Sanatorium Benefit Fund of Insurance Committees in Saorstát Eireann; and (b) the amount of the aggregate surplus or deficiency, as the case may be, standing to the credit or debit, respectively, of the Administration Fund of Insurance Committees in Saorstát Eireann.

It is not possible to give the actual aggregate surpluses of the Sanatorium Benefit Funds and Administration Funds of Insurance Committees. It is, however, estimated that on 31st December, 1929, the total surplus of the Sanatorium Benefit Funds of Insurance Committees will be £20,000, and of the Administration Fund £7,500.
