§ Dr. Little
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will go carefully into the particulars of the case submitted to him, and others of a similar kind, where residences and appurtenances have been taken over by the military authorities without adequate compensation being provided; and whether he will give instructions that all such persons shall receive a fair award for their houses and grounds so commandeered?
§ Captain Margesson
I am awaiting a report on the case to which my hon. Friend refers, and I am certainly ready to give sympathetic consideration to all such cases that are brought to my attention. As my hon. Friend is no doubt aware, compensation payable for requisitioned property is governed by the Compensation (Defence) Act, 1939.
