HC Deb 06 May 1969 vol 783 c63W
81. Mr. Crouch

asked the Secretary of State for Defence why the cost of assistance from the armed forces to local authorities in the flood disaster in Kent in September 1968 is to be charged to the local authorities concerned.

Mr. Boyden

It is normal for the Ministry of Defence to be reimbursed for expenditure on this kind of service.
