HC Deb 15 May 1918 vol 106 c362
78. Major HUNT

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the ease of George Knock, of Workington, Cumberland, who has already paid during ten years on the life of his father £31 17s. in premiums on an assurance policy to the Prudential Assurance Company of £50, and who was called up for military service in 1916, being now in Salonika, and whose wife, being unable to pay the premium due in October last, has received notice that the policy is lapsed; and whether the Government intend to allow insurance companies to take advantage in this way of men serving their country abroad?


My attention has been called to the case referred to by my hon. and gallant Friend, and inquiries are being made into the circumstances.
