§ 86. Mr. C. WHITE
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether life assurance agents are represented on the Committee which has been set up under the chairmanship of Lord Parmoor; and, if not, whether he will recommend or arrange that these agents may be represented at the inquiry and may have the right to examine and cross-examine witnesses?
§ 40. Major ENTWISTLE
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether instructions can and will be given by him to the Committee of Inquiry into industrial life assurance to permit the agents and collectors to have a representative at the Inquiry who shall have the right and opportunity to question witnesses and, if necessary, submit evidence?
§ Mr. BRIDGEMAN
The Committee has decided that the Inquiry shall be conducted in public when witnesses are being examined, but no person other than a member of the Committee will be allowed to examine the witnesses. An opportunity will be afforded to the accredited representative of any association of agents and collectors to submit evidence to the Committee.
