§ 72. Sir EDWARD COATES
asked whether insurance inspectors have the right to enter private houses; and, if so, what assurance the householder has that persons representing themselves to be in spectors are not in reality unauthorised persons desiring to enter for unlawful purposes?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
Health Insurance inspectors have no power under the National Insurance Act to demand entrance to any private dwelling house which is not a workshop. Every inspector is furnished with a warrant which he must produce when asked, as evidence of his authority, and any person suspected of falsely claiming to be a Health Insurance inspector should be asked to produce this warrant.
