To the Editor of The Times.

    Sir,--During the last week I have heard that my name has been mentioned in several papers as a strong opponent of the Insurance Bill, and to-day I learn that the same statement has been made in The Times.

    As I do not know what the exact allegation with regard to myself is will you be so kind as to send me a copy of your paper containing it (for which I enclose four stamps)? In the meantime allow me to say that I have made no such statement and that my opinion is wholly favourable to the Bill as being the best that could be done in the present state of public opinion. I have often privately expressed my great admiration of the manner in which Mr. Lloyd George has carried through Parliament so complex and beneficent a measure.

Yours truly,
Alfred R. Wallace.
Orchard, Broadstone, Dorset, Dec. 27.

    [So far as we are aware, no statement of Mr. A. R. Wallace's views as to the Insurance Act has been published in The Times.]
