HC Deb 13 December 1938 vol 342 c1799
54. Mr. Cluse

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether, in the absence of legislation, he can give particulars of the steps being taken by the Industrial Assurance Commissioner, to correct the abuses referred to in the Cohen Report?

Captain Wallace

Under the Industrial Assurance Act, 1923, the Industrial Assurance Commissioner is invested with certain powers, including the power to prosecute or to appoint an inspector, in order to secure the observance of the law relating to industrial assurance, and of these powers he makes effective use. In this connection I would refer the hon. Member to paragraph 68 of the Cohen Report.

Mr. Garro Jones
