HC Deb 03 August 1966 vol 733 cc104-5W
61. Mr. Kershaw

asked the Secretary of State for Defence when the Fire, Auto and Marine Insurance Company was placed on his Department's list of approved insurers; what expert advice he sought about the firm's standing; and whether he will remove the firm from his Department's approved list.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

This is not a list of approved insurers but of insurers who have given an undertaking that their policies in respect of vehicles owned by civil servants and members of the forces cover the use of the vehicles on official business. A Treasury instruction to add this company to the list was issued on 23rd May, 1966 and cancelled on 28th June. This was reproduced in routine instructions to naval shore establishment, and subsequently cancelled.
