Belfast was still coping with the aftermath of the raid. Emergency food was provided to the population. On 16 April, 70,000 meals were produced and by 21 April this had fallen to 10,000.[1]

Also, much of Belfast had been untouched by the raid, such as the Gasworks. Services were also being gradually restored.[2] Public transport was also returning to pre-raid levels.[3]

Local builders were advertising materials for repair of buildings.[4]
