HC Deb 10 June 1915 vol 72 cc473-4

Whereupon Mr. SPEAKER, pursuant to the Order of the House of the 3rd February, proposed the Question, "That this House do now adjourn."


May I now ask the question which was out of order a moment ago? It is this: A question was raised in the House yesterday as to compensation to people whose houses have been injured by air raids and so forth. The Prime Minister stated that there was under discussion a scheme of insurance for house owners against such possible injury. I should like to ask when it is likely that that scheme will be made known, and, secondly, what Department is being entrusted with the subject, so that we may know to what Department we may put questions in regard to it? That is a matter that has been pressing for the last three of four months, and great inconvenience is caused to householders, who, of course, do not intend to insure if the Government is going to insure them for nothing, or bring out a scheme somewhat cheaper than insurance outside.


I am sorry neither my hon. Friend nor I can answer the question. Perhaps the hon. and learned Gentleman will put a question on the Paper for Monday or Tuesday.

Question put, and agreed to.

Adjourned accordingly at Nineteen minutes after Eight o'clock till Monday next (14th June), pursuant to the Order of the House of the 3rd February.
