70. MARQUESS of TULLIBARDINE
asked the Lord Advocate whether he can now give any information to the House with regard to the alleged non-payment of insurance claims to Scottish farmers by a Scottish insurance company, as referred to by the hon. Member for the College Division of Glasgow on 21st July; and can he give the name of any farmer who has been treated in this way?
MARQUESS of TULLIBARDINE
May I ask the right hon. Gentleman is he aware that the farmer referred to is alleged to have given the wrong age of the animal when insuring, and that the delay in paying the claim was in consequence; and, further, that he threatened the company that if they did not pay up at once he would pillory them by raising 1484 the question in Parliament; and, further, that the farmer is now Member for the College Division of Glasgow?
