§ MR. MURNAGHAN (Tyrone, Mid)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury if he can state whether any Government or public buildings in Ireland are insured against risks by fire; and, if so, whether they are insured with British or with Irish insurance companies; and will he state the total amounts annually paid for insurance premiums to British and Irish insurance companies respectively.
§ MR. VICTOR CAVENDISH
As a general rule public buildings are not insured by Government against fire, but two buildings in Ireland which are leased for public purposes are insured under the lease, one with a British and one with an Irish company. The premiums are£1 10s. and 15s. per annum respectively.
