No, Sir. In so far as insurance under Part II of the War Damage Act is concerned, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to him by my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade on 24th February. Part I of the Act covers physical damage to property, but not loss or expenditure consequential upon such damage, of which the instance given in the Question is only one of many possible examples.
No, Sir. My hon. Friend will recall that when this legislation was introduced, I had to state, on behalf of the Government, that it had to be limited within its terms.
