§ 8. Mr. Frank Allaun
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if 7 he is aware that some car insurance companies which have ceased to trade have continued to receive payments under standing bankers' orders, where, through inadvertence, these have not been stopped; and what action he will take by legislation or otherwise to prevent this.
§ Sir J. Eden
If a policyholder inadvertently pays premiums to an insurance company after it has gone into liquidation, he should apply for reimbursement to the liquidator.
§ Mr. Allaun
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the receiver for the Alpha company has gone on accepting such payments for six months? As the Minister has some responsibility in this case, is he not morally and legally bound to see that these repayments are made?
