§ 83. Mr. ROWLANDS
asked the Minister of Munitions whether he is aware that 365 some of the men who lost their tools, etc., in the explosion in Essex some months ago have not yet received compensation for them; and will he see that the matter is dealt with as the men are inconvenienced by the long delay which prevents them replacing the tools?
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. Many of those who made claims have since removed and delay has arisen because of the difficulty of ascertaining their present addresses. The grants are being expedited.
