HC Deb 21 July 1910 vol 19 c1444

asked whether he will consider the advisability of amending the Assurance Companies Act, 1909, in order to permit assurance companies to deposit Irish Land Stock as security?


Any question of amending the Assurance Companies Act is primarily one for my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade, but a simpler method of securing the object which the hon. Baronet has in view would be the addition of Guaranteed Stock issued under the Irish Land Acts by order of court to the list of securities, in which cash under the control of the court may be invested. I will consult the Lord Chancellor as to the possibility of this being done.
