§ 11. Sir L. Ungoed-Thomas
asked the Minister of Labour if he will state the terms of reference of the Inter-Departmental Committee which he has set up to 2077 consider the decision of the House of Lords in Lister v. Romford Ice and Cold Storage Company Limited.
§ Sir L. Ungoed-Thomas
I understand from that Answer that the inquiry will not be confined to motoring cases only. Can the hon. Gentleman say specifically whether it is the intention, as the wording of the terms of reference seem to imply, that the Inter-Departmental Committee should also inquire into cases where employers have, in fact, insured against what their employees do or do not do and cases where employers should reasonably have insured against what their employees do or do not do? The hon. Gentleman will appreciate that these are points which were very much considered in the dissenting speeches in the House of Lords.
