Any additional coat needed to fully restore damage to buildings shall be  estimated by the Minister of Public Works or the agency concerned, as the case may be, and the Minister of the Budget shall release the minimum necessary funds on that basis, chargeable to the Calamity Fund.  Damage to chattels shall be evaluated/processed in accordance with existing policy and procedure.
Done in the  City of Manila,  this 13th day of March, in the year of Our Lord, nineteen hundred and eighty.
