§ 49. Mr. LESLIE SCOTT
had the following question on the Notice Paper: To ask the Prime Minister whether His Majesty's Government have arrived at any conclusion in their deliberations upon the question of a State system of insurance of British shipping against war risks in the event of this country being at war; and, if so, whether he is in a position to indicate the general nature of the scheme adopted?
§ Question No. 44 having been called and postponed,
§ Mr. SPEAKER
It seems to be the desire of the House that all the questions on the Paper should be postponed.
§ Mr. LESLIE SCOTT
I would desire, if possible, an answer to Question No. 49. It was put down after conversation with the right hon. Gentleman the Prime Minister?
§ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Lloyd George)
May I state that I propose to make a full statement on the subject later on in the course of the evening.
