HC Deb 29 January 1942 vol 377 c952W
Sir R. Clarry

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the fact that the amount received to date in respect of War Damage Contributions is £32,600,000, he can state the approximate due balance which has not yet been received?

Sir K. Wood

The total balance of the first instalment of the War Damage Contribution which is still outstanding about £6,500,000, but a proportion of this relates to the contributions in respect of properties damaged by enemy action, collection of which is suspended in accordance with the provisions of Section 33 of the War Damage Act, 1941.
