§ Mr. Gledhill
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the total amount of contributions still outstanding under the War Risk Insurance Act; and whether any proceedings have been taken for the recovery of these sums?
§ Sir A. Duncan
I have been asked to reply. No information is available which would enable me to give a direct answer to the first part of my hon. Friend's Question, but, from the amounts received in premium under Part II of the War Risks Insurance Act, 1939, I am satisfied that traders in general are carrying out their obligations under the Act. Proceedings have, in certain cases, been instituted under the Act where persons who were required to insure have failed to do so.
