§ 58. Sir J. Mellor
asked the Secretary of State for Burma whether any scheme similar to the War Damage Act is in force in Burma?
§ The Secretary of State for Burma (Mr. Amery)
There is no scheme so extensive as the War Damage Act in force in Burma. A War Risk Commodity Insurance scheme has been introduced. I have asked for details of this and will communicate with my hon. and gallant Friend as soon as I receive a reply.
§ Sir J. Mellor
Will my right hon. Friend give an assurance that losses due to enemy action, or arising from a "scorched earth" policy, will not be allowed to lie where they fall?
