HC Deb 09 August 1972 vol 842 cc420-1W
Mr. Greville Janner

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether, in view of increases in house prices, he will institute an advertising campaign to warn house owners of the desirability of increasing the value of their household insurance policies.

Mr. Eyre

I have no evidence that people are generally unaware of the need to insure their property to the maximum extent in order to cover themselves against the cost of providing a replacement. Some building societies make a point of advising their mortgagors to their effect.
