HC Deb 03 March 1919 vol 113 cc44-5W

asked the Prime Minister whether he has received a resolution from the Oldham and District Life Assurance Superintendents' and District Managers' Fraternal Association relating to the position that has arisen between the industrial life assurance offices and their outdoor staff as to the granting of a war bonus; if so, what action does the Government propose to take in the matter; and whether at anytime any guarantee has been expressly or impliedly given to any of the life assurance companies or societies that the Government would reimburse any of them in whole or in part in respect of the amounts paid in war claims since the commencement of hostilities?


I have been asked to reply to this question. I understand that my right hon. Friend has received the resolution referred to, but I am not in a position to add anything to the replies which have already been given on this subject. I would refer specially to the replies given on the 12th June and 5th November, 1918.
