§ Mr. Joynson-Hicks
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that the provisions for assessing requisitioning rental compensation under Section 2 (1) (a) of the Compensation (Defence) Act, 1939, no longer represent a fair assessment of expenses of property ownership and maintenance; and if he will seek powers to bring the provisions into line with present day requirements.
§ Sir S. Cripps
I would refer the hon. Member to Clauses 6 to 8 of the Requisitioned Land and War Works Bill now before Parliament.
