§ 29. Mr. R. McNEILL
asked the Home Secretary whether he received a letter from the Herne Bay Uurban District Council, dated the 24th of June, requesting information with regard to Government compensation in cases of personal injury to members of voluntary local fire brigades; whether he received a further 1639 letter from the same correspondent, dated the 8th of July, stating that no acknowledgment of the former letter had yet been received and requesting, as the matter was one of urgency, a reply by telegram, for which a stamped form was enclosed; if he will say why no acknowledgment of either of these communications has been sent to the Herne Bay Urban District Council; and whether he will have a reply sent to the letter of the 24th of June?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir John Simon)
I have made inquiry, and find that there is no trace of either of the letters referred to having been received in the Home Office. If the urban district council will send me a copy of their letter I will of course reply to it.
