HC Deb 01 August 1944 vol 402 cc1185-6W
Sir G. Jones

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take steps to ensure that the owner of a house destroyed by enemy action and in respect of which he has an admitted claim under the War Damage Insurance legislation for its value may be granted if, in necessitous circumstances, an immediate payment of the whole, or part, of what will ultimately be paid to him.

Sir J. Anderson

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answers on this subject which I gave to my Noble Friend the Member for the Sutton Division of Plymouth (Viscountess Astor) on 19th October last and to the hon. Member for the Scarborough and Whitby Division (Mr. Spearman) on 7th December last.
