§ 99. Mr. CAIRNS
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that part of Cambois colliery village, Northumberland, has been flooded; that 60 workmen's homes have been inundated with water, and that the furniture has been destroyed in many houses; and will he, as Minister of Health, help from the Imperial funds to 1550 provide new houses for these unfortunate people?
§ Sir A. MOND
I regret that there is no fund at my disposal out of which compensation could be given for the damage caused by the floods to which the hon. Member refers. I understand that a voluntary fund is being raised in the locality.
