HC Deb 16 July 1923 vol 166 c1889W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if the Royal Commission on Reparation Claims is still prepared to consider claims for suffering and damage by enemy action which have not been already presented?

Viscount WOLMER

Every belated claim will receive consideration under the direction of the Royal Commission on Compensation for Suffering and Damage by Enemy Action, and where sufficiently exceptional circumstances of excuse for delay exist the claim will be admitted for participation in the £5,000,000 compensation fund under the First Report of the Royal Commission.
