OF the questions which the good feeling now subsisting between
England and France has given rise to, perhaps the most remarkable
is the competition in Fire Insurance between French and English
A French Company has started in London, and has offered to
insure at 2s. per cent, the same risks as an English company would
charge 4s 6d. per cent. for.
Whence the difference of price ? The English have capital and
skill in the business, and great competition amongst the Insurance
Companies to reduce the price to the lowest amount. It is found,
however, that the difference of price arises from the amount of
the tax imposed by the English government.
