HC Deb 13 February 1945 vol 408 cc43-4W
Lady Apsley

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what provision is made by the War Damage Commission to re- place for owners of houses and shops deeds of property which they have lost owing to enemy action.

Sir J. Anderson

Part I of the War Damage Act, 1943, covers physical damage to property but not loss or damage consequential upon such damage, of which the instance given in the Question is only one of many possible examples. So far as Part II is concerned, documents of this kind and of similar kinds are expressly excluded from the definition of goods which can be insured.
