HC Deb 12 December 1944 vol 406 c1050
68. Lady Apsley

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in cases where the loss of share certificates is due to enemy action, he can reduce the present costly procedure of obtaining replacement by indemnity.

Captain Waterhouse

I am assured that companies in general are prepared to relax their usual requirements in suitable cases, and I, therefore, do not think any special action is needed.
