Lieut.-Colonel Sir ARNOLD WILSON:48.
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, whether he will instruct the industrial assurance commissioner to include in his next annual report a full review and summary of the working of the Industrial Assurance Act for the past 10 years?
A summary of the working of the Act is given year by year in the reports of the Industrial Assurance Commissioner which are presented to Parliament while a review of the business of industrial assurance in recent years is given in the report of the committee issued last year. In these circumstances I do not think any useful purpose would be served by adopting my hon. and gallant Friend's suggestion.
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will arrange that reports of inspections made under the orders of the industrial insurance commissioner which he considers it desirable to publish under Section 17 of the Industrial Assurance Act of 1923, in anticipation of his annual report, should, in future, be published by the Stationery Office after being laid upon the Table of this House?
It is proposed to accept the recommendation of the Committee on Industrial Assurance on this subject, which is substantially on the lines of my hon. and gallant Friend's suggestion.
