§ Mr. Bartlett
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury to what extent insurance premiums against risks incurred by civil servants and others travelling by air on official business are covered out of public funds.
§ Mr. Peake
The general position is that any premium required to keep alive an existing policy of life insurance which does not cover the risks of an overseas journey by air or sea, or any additional premium required to cover these special risks on a new policy, may, within limits, be repaid out of public funds. If my hon. Friend desires fuller information. I shall be happy to furnish him with it.
