AnnotationWith the exception of the Poor Law, schemes of social insurance such as pensions, had grown piecemeal in the previous 45 years. The Inter-Departmental Committee's terms of reference were "to undertake, with special reference to the inter-relation of the schemes, a survey of the existing national schemes of social insurance and allied services, including workmen's compensation, and to make recommendations." The plan for social security set out in the report is, first and foremost, a plan of insurance: of giving in return for contributions, benefits up to subsistence level, as of right, and without means test, so that individuals may build freely upon it.
