§ 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?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
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.
