HC Deb 26 January 1937 vol 319 c744
26. Mr. Potts

asked the President of the Board of Trade the financial position of the Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada for the years 1930 to 1936, or latest available year applicable, giving the number of policy holders, policies that lapsed, amount lost by the lapsed policy holders, annual income of the company, management cost, including collecting expenses, dividends to shareholders, amount paid to policy holders; and annual funds accrued from profits each year?

Dr. Burgin

I have no information in regard to the items mentioned by the hon. Member other than is provided by the returns furnished by this insurance company to the Board of Trade under the Assurance Companies Act, 1909. These returns do not give any particulars in regard to policies which may have lapsed. A summary of the returns is published annually in the volumes entitled "Assurance Companies' Returns," which are laid before Parliament, and the detailed returns are open for inspection at the office of the Registrar of Companies at Bush House, W.C.2. I would refer the hon. Member to these sources for the information he desires, so far as it is available.

Mr. Potts

I thank the hon. Gentleman.
