HC Deb 06 March 1893 vol 9 c1071

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether his Department has information respecting successful methods of insuring the lives of the officers and crews of ships adopted by the Peninsular and Oriental and other large Shipping Companies in the United Kingdom; and whether it has similar information with respect to any European Shipping Companies; and, if so, whether he will lay upon the Table of the House a Memorandum embodying such information?


I regret to say that the Board of Trade have no authoritative details of the insurance schemes of Shipping Companies, British or Foreign, which would be serviceable to the House.
