§ 59. Sir CHARLES HENRY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether it is the intention of the Government to extend 627 the War Risk Insurance schemes to cargoes of neutral vessels which are trading between neutral ports and those of the Allies?
My right hon. Friend has asked me to answer this question. The question of the war insurance of essential cargoes carried on neutral ships to Allied countries is being carefully watched. At present I am advised that adequate insurance is obtainable for these essential cargoes at market rates through the ordinary insurance channels.
