HC Deb 09 February 1939 vol 343 c1139W
Mr. Parker

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what provision is made in the Government's scheme for compensation to property owners for persons buying houses through building societies having to continue these payments in the event of the total destruction or irreparable damage of their houses in the event of war?

Sir J. Simon

The hon. Member will find that the sort of event he has in mind is dealt with in paragraphs 25 and 31 of the report of the committee on the responsibility for the repair of premises damaged by hostilities (Command Paper No. 5934).
