HC Deb 26 July 1935 vol 304 c2177W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to a recent case in the courts by which a widow unsuccessfully claimed from an insurance company in respect of her husband's death, owing to the wording on one of the company's proposal forms not being fully understood by the insured man previous to his death; and whether, owing to the obscure and ambiguous form of wording adopted by some insurance companies in these proposal forms, he will consider introducing legislation to ensure that all such farms shall be clearly worded so that no similar misunderstandings shall arise in future?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answers which I gave to the hon. Member for Deritend (Mr. Crooke) on 24th July.
