HC Deb 19 February 1958 vol 582 c148W
74. Mr. R. Harris

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation, in view of the increase in air travel, and of the fact that accident insurance policies which can be purchased by travellers from slot machines at airports are confined to persons over 14 and under 70 years of age, if he will introduce legislation to remove the legal barriers to persons of any age availing themselves of these facilities.

Mr. Neave

The age limits laid down in policies issued through slot machines at airports are not set as the result of any legal barriers of a general nature but are set by the insurers. I see no justification for disturbing this arrangement; persons outside these age limits should have no difficulty in obtaining insurances direct from insurers.
