§ 130. Viscount Hinchingbrooke
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether compensation is payable to Mrs. Arkell, Glen Cottage, Ringstead Bay, Dorset, in excess of the compensation payable under the Compensation (Defence) Act, 1939, in view of the fact that Clause 52 of the Requisitioned Land and War Works Act, 1945, provides that, subject to the discretion of a Minister, the costs of reinstating damage done to property during requisition may be paid.
§ Mr. P. Noel-Baker
Yes, Sir. Some works to restore this cottage have, I understand, already been undertaken and I am consulting my right hon. Friend the Minister of Health on the amount of the supplement to normal compensation which falls to be paid.
