HC Deb 06 November 1911 vol 30 cc1436-7W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether an approved society will be compelled to keep the books and accounts of its members in the approved section in the special form prescribed by the Insurance Commissioners, or whether it can keep them in such manner as may be considered by such society to be the best adapted to its own particular circumstances, provided a separate account is kept of all moneys received and paid on behalf of such section as is now done in respect of the separate funds that may be assured in accordance with Schedule 1, paragraph 10, of the Friendly Societies Act, 1896?


This is a matter which must be left to the discretion of the Insurance Commissioners. I have no doubt that they will have due regard to the convenience of the societies.
