47. Mr. TREVELYAN THOMSON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much of the sum of£5,300,000 allocated by the Government to meet the claims of those who suffered loss and damage through enemy action has been distributed to claimants; and what is the amount of outstanding claims to date?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The total amount distributed to claimants up to the present is£4,886,000. It is impossible to state what is the amount of outstanding claims as some 2,000 claimants have not yet returned the forms issued to them.
