§ Mr. Rhys Davies
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that some reports presented to county councils and county boroughs covering the loss of life and damage to property by enemy action does not include any reference to damage done to privately-owned industrial plant, commercial buildings, offices and shops; whether that information is collected, by whom, and to whom it is presented; and 315W whether all reports of this nature are supplied to each member of His Majesty's Government?
§ Mr. H. Morrison
The answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative. Full information about air raid damage is collected through official channels, and there would be objection on grounds of security to disclosure of the manner in which information is collected and conveyed to all the responsible authorities.
