I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time."
This Clause seeks to avoid duplication of payments in respect of war damage where compensation may have already been paid under the Compensation Defence Act. The second Sub-section deals with cases where ex gratin payments have already been made in respect of damage by balloons from balloon barrages and the third deals with a rather special point. There are, for example, certain by-laws affecting railway companies regarding the ammunition they carry, and it may be in the interests of the realm that these by-laws should have to be broken. It is possible that there may be war damage at a time when ammunition is being carried in these circumstances, and it is desired that all claims should be dealt with under this Bill. I think paragraph (b) may be rather more widely worded than is necessary, but I will look into the matter between now and the Report stage and perhaps make the words a little clearer.
