§ 59. Mr. THOMAS SHAW
asked the Secretary to the Treasury if industrial insurance companies have submitted claims against Germany for sums paid on policies held by the relatives of soldiers who have been killed; and whether he will see that friendly societies and trade unions who pay funeral benefits shall receive any concession granted to insurance companies?
I am not aware that any industrial insurance companies 1068 have submitted claims against the German Government for sums paid on policies held by the relatives of soldiers who have been killed. Any British friendly society, trade union, or other insurance institution can register claims under the Foreign Claims Office for losses which it has sustained in respect of policy-holders killed by illegal enemy action.
