HC Deb 20 February 1941 vol 369 c292
66. Captain Plugge

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the uncertainty of those whose property has been destroyed as a result of enemy action as to their exact position in regard to compensation, and who think they are entitled at once to claim from the Assistance Board, the local authority, or the State, the total sum of their losses, he can make a public explanation of what such persons must do in anticipation of the War Damage Bill becoming law?

Captain Crookshank

The existing position is explained in the Ministry of Information leaflet, entitled "After the Raid," of which I am sending my hon. and gallant Friend a copy.

67. Mr. T. Smith

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether it is intended, under the War Damage Bill, to enforce payment of contributions in respect of minerals below ground?

Captain Crookshank

Perhaps my hon. Friend will await a new Clause for the War Damage Bill which my right hon. Friend proposes to submit to the House on this matter.
