HC Deb 27 June 1940 vol 362 c605W
Mr. Graham White

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether consideration has been given to the advisability of giving financial help by means of a moratorium or otherwise to those whose livelihood has been destroyed by movement of populations from evacuation areas leading to loss of business and employment?

The Attorney-General

I have been asked to reply. Very careful consideration has been given to the class of case referred to. The statutory provisions designed to give protection are contained in the Courts (Emergency Powers) Act, 1939, and a Bill to amend this Act was given a Second Reading and debated yesterday. If the hon. Gentleman has any special suggestions he would like considered I would be very glad to receive them.
