§ 34. Captain TRYON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether, when the barracks and married quarters in this country which were till lately occupied by units of the Expeditionary Force are taken over and occupied by other units, arrangements will be made to ensure that no loss shall be incurred by the families thus removed from their quarters; and, in the event of lodging allowance being granted, will he see that such allowances be adequate, taking into account the cost of housing in the district concerned?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Harold Baker)
Special arrangements are being made to compensate these families for their removal, and allowances on an adequate scale will be granted.
If the woman and family of a man serving are turned out, cannot the Government be responsible, not 770 merely for a money allowance but for adequate housing for the family?
§ Lord EDMUND TALBOT
Can the hon. Gentleman tell us now what the increase in the money allowance is?
