HC Deb 15 July 1943 vol 391 cc359-60
40. Mr. De la Bère

asked the Minister of Health whether he is in a position to make a statement, both as regards financial assistance and availability of material, regarding the re-building of small houses which have been demolished at various times since the outbreak of war by enemy action?

Mr. E. Brown

Compensation in respect of houses demolished by enemy action is governed by the provisions of the War Damage Act. As regards availability of materials, I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement I made on 8th April last on the question of post-war building priorities, of which I am sending him a copy.

Mr. De la Bère

Would it be possible to ensure a certain amount of publicity, as there are so many people interested?

Mr. Brown

I will do my best.
