HC Deb 23 July 1946 vol 425 cc338-9W
132. Mr. T. Reid

asked the Secretary of State for War if he has now decided to compensate the Swindon Town Council for all the damage done to Crate Water, Swindon, during the war.

Mr. Lawson

I have been in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Town and Country Planning and I am advising the Swindon Town Council how to proceed if they wish, as I understand, to claim an amount in excess of that which is payable by my Depart-merit under the Compensation (Defence) Act, 1939.
