§ MR. FIELD
I beg to ask Mr. Attorney General for Ireland whether he is aware that in certain cases Insurance Companies have issued policies and accepted premiums for many years without admitting the age on the face of the policy, and have then sought by a technical objection to delay and embarass the payment of the sum assured; and whether he will introduce legislation to secure policy holders.
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. ATKINSON,) Londonderry, N.
My attention has not been called to the matter referred to. The insured can always protect themselves by the contract they enter into with the companies. Legislation on the subject does not seem to be necessary.
