HC Deb 28 February 1912 vol 34 cc1350-1

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if his attention has been directed to the fact that a body terming itself the National Insurance Advisory Council, of 3, Northampton Square, London, E.C., has been giving advice to friendly societies which has been thought by those who have received it to be official in character; and whether he can do anything by more widely advertising the proper title and address of the Insurance Commissioners to prevent the continuance of such proceedings?


As I indicated in my reply to the hon. Member for Enfield on the 20th February, the body referred to has no connection, direct or indirect, with the Insurance Commission, and no authority to give any official advice. The issue from the office of the Insurance Commission of forms, regulations, and correspondence, which is daily increasing, will, I hope, make the proper title and address of the Insurance Commission known to all those who are interested, and prevent any such unfortunate misunderstandings as those referred to by the hon. Member.
