Sir, In response to the letter regarding Eileen Wharton's search for her husband's employer's insurance company (Letters, January 19), the Association of British Insurers has a code of practice for tracing employer's liability insurers that may prove to be of help.
Mrs Wharton can submit the details of the company online and then the ABI will do its best to trace their insurer. The information can be found at www. abi. org. uk.
From the home page, she should go to 'information zone' then 'for consumers' then 'tracing employers liability insurers'.
If this has not already been tried, then I hope it helps in her search.
