HC Deb 30 March 1939 vol 345 cc2233-4W
Mr. Storey

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether ships under construction will be covered by any scheme of Government insurance against War risks?

Mr. Stanley

It is the intention of the Government in connection with the proposed scheme of insurance for essential commodities to provide facilities under which ships under construction in this country, which fall within that description, can be covered against war risks. All ships would be covered except private pleasure craft.
