HC Deb 16 October 1940 vol 365 c716W
Sir A. Baillie

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that the recent heavy bombing of farmers on the Kent coast has resulted in a heavy loss of livestock and other farm animals; and whether he will consider what steps can be taken to replace this stock either by grant or loan to enable farmers to carry on?

Mr. Hudson

I am aware that there has been some loss of livestock from enemy action in Kent. As regards the second part, the question of insurance of livestock and other farmers' property against the risk of war damage is now under consideration.
