Mr. Mort

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury to what extent people deprived of their homes, furniture and goods as the result of air raids, and having no financial means of replacing them, are assisted out of public funds?

Immediate cash advances are made in respect of essential furniture and personal clothing to people of limited means under the scheme announced by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister on 5th September. As regards damage to dwelling-houses, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply (of which I am sending him a copy) given by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Health in answer to a Question by my hon. Friend the Member for Gravesend. (Sir I. Albery).
