HC Deb 16 May 1918 vol 106 c524
28. Major HUNT

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the Civil Liabilities Committee have power to pay the premiums on assurance policies of men called up for naval or military service who are unable to keep them up; and, if so, why so many of these policies have been lapsed?


Insurance premiums are included in the obligations in respect of which assistance is granted by the Civil Liabilities Committee to men called up for naval or military service, and I have no information that their policies are specially subject to lapsing.

Major HUNT

If men apply to have their policies paid up by the Civil Liabilities Committee, are the Civil Liabilities Committee bound to consider the claims, and bound to pay them if they are good cases?


The hon. Member should give notice of that.
