HC Deb 03 March 1936 vol 309 c1171
28. Colonel ROPNER

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the introduction of a measure to provide for Government co-operation in a system of war-risk insurance of ships and cargoes has been periodically under discussion since 1926; and whether he will now take steps to settle this matter by terminating the already long period of delay?


Schemes for the insurance of British ships and cargoes against King's enemy risks have been prepared, and can be put into force immediately, should necessity arise.
