HC Deb 04 May 1943 vol 389 cc14-5
32. Mr. Bellenger

asked the Secretary of State for War whether a decision has been made to amend the present schedule of billeting allowances to civilian householders?

Sir J. Grigg

Certain increases in the present billeting rates are in contemplation, and the details will be issued shortly.

Mr. Bellenger

In view of the undertaking that was given by the Financial Secretary before the Recess, can my right hon. Friend give an indication when these new rates will be issued?

Sir J. Grigg

I have only in the last few hours had a decision on this matter, so that I can give no further information other than that it will be shortly.
