§ 84. Mr. KELLY
asked the Minister of Transport whether he has considered the facts disclosed recently at the Clerkenwell Police Court respecting the issue of cover notes and the irregular taking of premiums for the insurance of motor vehicles; whether he operates the Assurance Companies Act, 1935, so as to prevent the practices complained of; and, if the Act does not provide him with the necessary power, will he introduce appropriate amending legislation?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
This was a case where premiums were misappropriated by an agent. The insurance company concerned accepted liability, and I do not think that the case affords any ground for amending legislation.
