§ 26. Mr. MILLAR
asked the Minister of Munitions whether the Central Control Board (Liquor Traffic) have settled any claims in respect of licensed premises taken over by the Board without such claims having been submitted to the Liquor Losses Commission; and, if so, whether he can state the number of claims so settled; the total amounts claimed; the total amounts paid; and the procedure adopted to secure that such claims were closely scrutinised before payment?
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
Since the date of Mr. Justice Younger's judgment in the Cannon Brewery case the number of claims for compensation in respect of licensed premises taken over, for which the compensation has been agreed, as the result of negotiations, and the claim paid, is twenty, the total sum thus paid being between £16,000 and £17,000.
