HC Deb 16 April 1940 vol 359 cc803-4W
Sir Granville Gibson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has yet received a further report from the committee appointed under the chairmanship of Mr. Andrewes Uthwatt to consider the principles of assessment of war damage to property for the purpose of the Government's compensation scheme; if so, when the report will be published; and whether he has any statement to make?

Sir J. Simon

Yes, Sir. Mr. Uthwatt's committee have made their final report which is published to-day, copies of the report being available in the Vote Office. I am glad to take this opportunity to state that the Government accept the principles enunciated in that report.
