§ Mr. Silkin
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware of the growing evil of looting of the furniture and effects of families whose homes have been destroyed by enemy action, including in one case the removal of a piano; and whether he will arrange for a more effective watch by the police, air-raid wardens or otherwise over such property?
§ Mr. Peake
I would refer the hon. Member to the answers given to Questions on this subject by the hon. Members for Ealing (Sir F. Sanderson) and South Portsmouth (Sir J. Lucas) on 10th October and 7th November. The matter is one to which the Commissioner of Police is giving close attention with a view to providing the fullest possible measure of protection for exposed property.
