BIG INSURANCE FIGURES. There are no fewer than 27,941,960 people whose lives are insured in the United King- dom, and the total value of the policies in force amounts to the enormous total of £ 1,005,808,588. These facts are, however, brought to light in a voluminous Blue-book giving the returns of the ninety-five British insurance, companies which carry on life in- surance business. The companies have assets totalling X384,398,298 in value and they receive in premiums nearly X37,000,000 a year. The most remarkable fact is the large proportion of the insurances in force which have been undertaken by the eighteen companies doing industrial business. Ordinary policies num- ber 2,397,915, and the amount is £ 754,252,481, while the industrial run up to 25,544,045, but the amount is £ 251,556,107. The significance of this fact is seen when it is pointed out that the total premiums are divided between tho two classes of insurance as follows:âOrdinary J625,000,000, Indus- trial X12,000,000. Thus it is evident that, taking an average, the insurers in industrial companies, most of whom are working people, pay premiums of about J61 for every £ 21 insured, while those who hspre their policies in the ordinary companies obtain an insurance value of just over X30 for every XI premium.
