§ Mr. GINNELL
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will state to what date the latest statutory returns of the United Dominions Insurance Company, Limited, were made up; when and by whom the present chairman and directors were appointed; how many of these have been directors of companies that have failed to meet their engagements; the amount of their present fees; the net profit on the year's business; the number of operative insurances held by the company; the present available capital; and how secured?
§ Mr. BURNS
Returns under the Assurance Companies Act, 1909, are not made by the United Dominions Insurance Company, Limited, but the latest annual summary filed by that company under the Companies (Consolidation) Act, 1908, is made up to 10th July, 1913. The only official information which the Board of Trade have with regard to the company is that contained in the statutory returns, which are open to public inspection, and I must refer my hon. Friend to those returns for any particulars he may desire to obtain.
