§ 30. Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will undertake that when an inquiry is held into industrial life assurance it shall be public, that the National Amalgamated Union of Life Assurance Workers shall be directly represented on the Committee, and that the term of reference of the inquiry shall include the remuneration and conditions of service of the insurance agents?
§ Mr. BRIDGEMAN
A Committee to inquire into industrial life assurance has already been appointed, and I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given on the 5th May to the question addressed to the Prime Minister by the Noble and gallant Lord, the Member for Horsham and Worthing, in which the composition of the Committee and the terms of reference were stated. From this answer it will be seen that it has been decided not to include representatives of the agents and collectors. The Committee have decided that the inquiry shall be conducted in public when witnesses are being examined, and that evidence bearing upon the remuneration and conditions of service of the agents shall be admitted.
