HC Deb 17 November 1944 vol 404 c2261W
Mr. Bellenger

asked the Minister of Health whether persons officially evacuated from bombed areas and supplied with blankets, articles of furniture and other household goods, some of which were contributed by the public, will be allowed to retain such articles when removing from the requisitioned premises at the termination of the war.

Mr. Willink

Most evacuees will have their own homes and household goods to return to, and equipment supplied on loan (as distinct from gifts to the evacuees individually) for their use while accommodated in the reception areas must be returned to the issuing authority. Where the evacuees' home has been destroyed by enemy action essential replacements of household goods can be obtained from the local authority of the home area, and arrangements for supplementing these essentials from voluntary sources are under consideration.
