HC Deb 14 June 1945 vol 411 c1817W
Viscount Hinchingbrooke

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is now in a position to state whether compensation will be paid to Channel Islanders whose furniture has been confiscated by the Germans or by local authorities during the occupation.

Sir D. Somervell

The question of compensation for loss of, or damage to, property and chattels as a direct result of the German occupation is being considered, but the Islands administrations, with whom the matter will require careful consultation, are engaged on the immediate tasks of rehabilitation, and I am not yet in a position to make a statement.
