HC Deb 08 April 1941 vol 370 c1394
16. Sir Patrick Hannon

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he can now state when the insurance schemes provided for in Part II of the War Damage Act will be put into operation?

Captain Waterhouse

Yes, Sir. Orders have now been laid before Parliament bringing the business scheme, including the special scheme for farmers, into force on 17th April and the private chattels scheme on 1st May. Thirty days' grace will be given in each case to enable people to take out policies under the schemes.

Sir P. Hannon

Will my hon. and gallant Friend issue instructions, or publish a memorandum in the "Board of Trade Journal" describing the procedure which should be followed by persons in these cases?

Captain Waterhouse

Yes, Sir; an instructional paper is now being prepared and will be published as soon as practicable.

Mr. Neil Maclean

Will that instruction be published not only in the "Board of Trade Journal" but elsewhere?
