HC Deb 09 November 1944 vol 404 c1545W
Mr. Doland

asked the Minister of Health if he will consider reimbursing the London boroughs for their loss of rateable value owing to the flying bomb and other enemy attacks; and if he will consider the loss so occasioned be a change upon the whole community.

Mr. Willink

My hon. Friend is aware that a scheme is in operation under which financial assistance is given to local authorities whose loss of income owing to the war is so great that there is a serious risk of a breakdown of essential local services. I do not consider that a case has been made for changing the present arrangements.
