§ Sir J. Smedley Crooke
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the fact that insurance companies will not insure against war risks, and that in case of a war when manufacturers' premises will be bombed by enemy aircraft resulting, among other serious consequences, in throwing men out of employment, he will consider instituting a national insurance scheme against war risks, with a premium based on the assessable value of the premises applied to every commercial building throughout the country, thus realising a large sum to be drawn upon in the event of damage being sustained?
§ Captain Wallace
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which my right hon. Friend gave on 15th November to my hon. Friend the Member for Barrow-in-Furness (Sir J. Walker-Smith).
