33. Mr. L. MALONE
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of the serious position caused to unemployed persons who, owing to unemployment, are unable to meet their insurance premiums and who are now receiving lapse notices from the leading assurance companies; and whether he will consider the intro- 1885 duction of measures to obtain for unemployed persons a moratorium to cover insurance?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Shortt)
I have been asked to reply. Recommendations for dealing with hardship resulting from lapsed policies were made by Lord Parmoor's Committee on Industrial Assurance, and, as stated in reply to a question on Monday, I hope to introduce legislation on this subject at an early date.
