This deals with all policies issued after the commencement of the Act, but is there to be a notice issued with regard to the position of those who have been insured before 1923? It may be said that it is the duty of everyone to know what is his position under an Act of Parliament, but I am afraid that that is sometimes not known even to Members of this House. How you are to expect these people, who are all their time engaged in trying to make a livelihood, to know their position under these complicated insurance Acts, I do not know. Will the notice to be tendered under this Amendment cover the rights and the position of those who have been insured up to 1923?
