HC Deb 29 March 1945 vol 409 cc1563-4W
Captain P. Macdonald

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is yet in a position to make any statement as to the conditions under which the authorities will be prepared to repurchase indoor shelters from those who were obliged to pay for them.

Mr. H. Morrison

It appears improbable that the need will arise for the Government to revert to the practice of repurchasing privately-owned indoor shelters, which was resorted to only for the purpose of meeting temporary shortages.
