42. Major HOPE
asked the hon. Member for St. George's-in-the-East, as representing the Insurance Commissioners, to what purpose or fund the contributions of insured emigrants are applied in cases where it is not found practicable to transfer the emigrant to a society or institution in the country to which he or she has emigrated?
§ Mr. WEDGWOOD BENN (Lord of the Treasury)
The cost of the emigrant's insurance while he was still in this country will ordinarily have exceeded the amount of the contributions paid by him.
