NO RENT FOR SOLDIERS MORATORIUM AMENDMENT TO COMPULSION BILL. Mr. Walter Roch has placed on the paper the followin.g amendment to the Compulsion Bill, the object being to create a moratorium for civil liabilities and premiums on policies of assurances incurred by or due from men serving in the Army :— All proceedings already instituted, or hereafter instituted, in any civil court and any right of distress for rent against any person who has enlisted and is serving in any of the armed forces of the Crown since the 15th day of October, 1915, shall be suspended during the continuance of the war, un- less such person or anyone acting for him under a power of attorney shall have assented thereto. No policy of assiurance phall lapse by reason of non-payment of any pre- mium due, thereunder, or any part thereof, during the continuance of the war, by amy person to whom this section applies. Similar freedom from the payment of rent and of life insurance premiums is provided in France in the case of house- holders called up for military service. Sir Alfred Mond has introduced a Bill the object of which is to ensure the same end as MT. Roch's amendment. A de- claration of Government policy on tllIS important subject, which is causing anxiety in thousands of households, is long overdue.
