asked the Minister of Health which municipalities insure their own risks in respect of workmen's compensation and, of the remainder, how many insure with the Municipal Mutual?


About 30 authorities have obtained powers by special Act to establish funds for meeting claims for workmen's compensation; but my right hon. Friend does not know how many of them have acted under these powers; nor does he know how many municipalities insure with the association mentioned. The matter is not one which has in the ordinary course to be reported to my right hon. Friend's Department.
