HC Deb 01 April 1941 vol 370 c871W
Mr. Perkins

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Buildings whether he has paid for the furniture, black-out curtains, etc., commandeered by him in September, 1939, in the Holloway Institute, Stroud, Gloucestershire; and, if not, how much is still owing to the Red Cross, and when he proposes to pay this money?

Mr. Hicks

Yes, Sir. All claims in respect of furniture have been settled. I am not aware that the local Red Cross had any legal interest in the premises and no claim from that body can be traced.
