HC Deb 21 May 1908 vol 189 c504

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will endeavour to ascertain in regard to industrial assurance companies the number of policies for which premium has been paid up to the death of the insured person, the liability for which has been denied by the companies concerned, and the total value of such policies.


I am considering what steps can be taken to obtain fuller information on this subject. It does not appear from the hon. Member's Question whether he is concerned solely with refusals to pay on the ground chat the insurer had no insurable interest, or whether he desires information as to the total number of policies the liability for which is denied on any grounds. Perhaps he will be so good as to write to me on this point.
