HC Deb 09 March 1944 vol 397 c2177
43. Captain Prescott

asked the Minister of Health whether he will consider increasing the billeting allowances paid for the accommodation of evacuees, particularly in relation to unaccompanied children, as the allowances in many cases are insufficient to meet the financial burden thrown upon householders by the presence of evacuees.

The Minister of Health (Mr. Willink)

This matter is already under consideration, but I am not in a position to make a statement at present.

Captain Prescott

Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman consider any special cases I wish to bring to his notice?

Mr. Willink

I think that my hon. and gallant Friend should await the statement I have mentioned. In the meantime we are grateful to those who are carrying on.
