HC Deb 18 January 1945 vol 407 c395W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, and on what lines, it is proposed financially to help the Bethnal Green Council to meet the air-raid claims against them.

Mr. H. Morrison

The question whether the Bethnal Green Borough Council should be given Exchequer assistance in respect of their expenditure arising out of the recent legal proceedings, and if so to what extent, is under consideration, but I regret that I am not yet in a position to announce a decision.
