HC Deb 22 February 1945 vol 408 cc977-8W
Sir P. Harris

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is now in a position to make a statement about the Bethnal Green shelter case; and particularly about the position of men serving overseas who are Statute barred.

Mr. H. Morrison

A letter is being sent almost immediately to the Borough Council, through the solicitors who represented them in the legal proceedings, suggesting the basis on which the Council should proceed to deal with outstanding claims, including any which are Statute-barred. If my right hon, Friend will be good enough to repeat his Question for answer on Thursday week, I hope to be able by then to give him fuller information.
