This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ...that limitation was removed altogether or modified, say reduced from two weeks to one week, what effect that will have?--The experience of the year ended 1902 gives the half average weekly earnings of work persons at 12s. 9d. per week, and the duration 7-5 weeks. 4335. The duration of what?--The duration of disablement. Und;r the existing Act 7-5 weeks at 12s. 9d. equals 15s. 7d.; and two weeks at 12k. 9d. equals 1 5s. 6d.. which is equal to an increased cost of 26 per cent. In addition to the above the number of claimants for compensation in respect of the first fourteen days will augment the cost. That is going on to the other point. That represents the increase so far as the present recipients are concerned. 4336. If, in addition, you have to pay two weeks more?--Instead of paying 4 15s. 7d. we should have to pay 6 Is. 2d.; that is, if we have to pay for people who would come on the funds for the first two weeks. 4337. That is to say, if you had to pay for people whose disablement did not last more than two weeks?--Yes. Now I make a comparison. The Lancashire and Cheshire Permanent Relief Society for the year 1902 had 45,792 members. The number of disablement cases were 8,493. The members of the Northern Employers' Mutual Indemnity Company, Limited, employed 34,601 work persons. That is for that particular year. The proportion of disablement cases based on the number employed would be 6,416. The number of claims under the present Act for 1902 were 1,338. Therefore, assuming that under the proposed alteration, the number of claims are increased in the ratio of the experience of the Lancashire and Cheshire Permanent Relief Society, instead of having 1,338 claims per annum, there would be 6,416 claimants, or more
