HC Deb 02 August 1944 vol 402 c1404W
Mrs. Cazalet Keir

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will introduce legislation in order that compensation under the War Damage Act is made available to those who have been subject to looting after bombing attacks.

Captain Waterhouse

As has been frequently explained in this House, the general principle of War Damage Insurance deliberately excludes such loses. I regret, therefore, that my right hon. Friend could not adopt my hon. Friend's suggestion.
