HC Deb 24 July 1939 vol 350 c1025
79. Mr. Shinwell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when the Committee of Inquiry into War Risks Insurance for Property is to begin its investigations, and what are the terms of reference upon which the inquiry is to be held?

The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Captain Crookshank)

The arrangements for constituting the conference are being completed, but I am not yet in a position to say when it will begin its investigations. As regards the scope of the conference I would refer the hon. Member to the statement made by my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade during the Debate on the War Risks Insurance Bill on 17th July.
