Prior to 1st April 1974 an insurable income limit was laid down by the then Department of Social Welfare and if an individuals earnings exceeded these limits a Social Welfare contribution was not payable by the employee. From 1 January 1973 the earnings of the person mentioned were in excess of the insurable limit of £1,600 and therefore she was not liable to pay a social welfare contribution. My Department has confirmed from our records that a Health Contribution was deducted from Ms Harney's remuneration during the period in question.
