HC Deb 16 August 1911 vol 29 c2071W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether there is any restriction on the use of a false name by an insurance company when it may amount to a false pretence; whether he is aware that the success of the so-called Irish Provident Assurance Company in obtaining money was due to the use of that name and its implication that the company was Irish; whether the Board of Trade, having allowed its directors to do life insurance business contrary to Law and to their own articles, will now allow those same men, as directors of the London and Provincial Assurance Company, by transferring these life cases to themselves, to escape the consequences of insolvency on the endowment cases; and, whether, as a condition of being allowed to retain life contracts illegal in origin, the London and Provincial will be required to indemnify the endowment policy-holders of the Irish Provident Company?


I have nothing to add to toy previous answers on this subject.
