HC Deb 20 October 1942 vol 383 cc1833-4
53. Viscount Hinchingbrooke

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer in what circumstances current payments can be made to the owner of land requisitioned by a Service Department in respect of minerals extracted for the use of the Department subsequent to a requisition; and if in no circumstances whether he will amend the relevant Defence Regulations to enable current payments to be made?

Sir K. Wood

I would refer the Noble Lord to the answer given to him by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Air on 8th October last. If he has any particular case in mind on which difficulty has arisen, perhaps he will let me have particulars.
