HC Deb 21 November 1918 vol 110 c3471W
Major HUNT

asked the Minister of National Service whether complaints have been received by insurance agents who refuse to adopt the block system; and whether, seeing that this block system is a form of sweated labour, what steps he I proposes to take in the matter?


I have been asked to reply to this question. I am not aware that complaints of the nature referred to by the hon. Member have been received; the matter would appear to be one in the first place for consideration by the agents in the companies they represent.


asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the failure of many of the large insurance companies to provide a war bonus for their agents and employés, he is prepared to take any action in the matter?


My right hon. Friend is unable to add anything to the reply given by the hon. Member for Newbury on 12th June last.
