asked the Secretary of State for Burma whether any scheme similar to the War Damage Act is in force in Burma?
There is no scheme so extensive as the War Damage Act in force in Burma. A War Risk Commodity Insurance scheme has been introduced. I have asked for details of this and will communicate with my hon. and gallant Friend as soon as I receive a reply.
Will my right hon. Friend give an assurance that losses due to enemy action, or arising from a "scorched earth" policy, will not be allowed to lie where they fall?
