HC Deb 25 February 1924 vol 170 cc97-8W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that there are probably millions of pounds due under industrial policies of insurance awaiting claimants ignorant of their rights under the Courts Emergency Powers Act; and whether he will take steps to ensure effective publicity in this matter, which affects the interests of many policy holders?


I have no reason to suppose that the position is as stated by the hon. Member. A large measure of publicity by Press notices, posters and circulars has already been given to the rights of the holders of policies which had been protected by the Emergency Courts Act, and as the date before which these rights must be claimed has now passed, except for a very small minority of policy holders, I do not think that any further publicity is necessary.
