Mr. T. THOMSON
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if he will be in a position to state before the Recess what action the Public Prosecutor proposes to take with regard to the state of affairs disclosed by the case in the Hull County Court last month in connection with the issue of 5 per cent. War Bond policies by the Prudential Assurance Company, when they had to refund all premiums paid on account of fraudulent misrepresentation?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
This matter is receiving the closest attention from the Director of Public Prosecutions, and every effort will be made to reach a decision before the Recess as to the action to be taken.
