Mr. Liddall

asked the President of the Board of Trade the amount of the total stocks insured under the War Risks Insurance Act, 1939; and how much of this total value of stocks represents goods held by retailers?

Major Lloyd George

The total value of goods insured under current policies of insurance issued under Part II of the War Risks Insurance Act, 1939, is approximately £1,200 million. I am not able to say what proportion of this value represents goods held by retailers.
