HC Deb 03 November 1919 vol 120 c1108
38. Colonel ASHLEY

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions why ex-Service men's organisations are refused the concessions granted to housing and educational authorities with respect to the purchase of surplus Army huts and buildings?


The Government has decided in connection with the purchase by local authorities of surplus Army huts that a discount of 33⅓ per cent. shall be allowed to them by the Disposal Board, and the balance shall be credited to the Disposal Board by the Ministry of Health and the Board of Education respectively. The Disposal Board is not authorised to extend this concession.

Colonel ASHLEY

I beg to give notice that, owing to the unsatisfactory answer of the hon. Gentleman, I will raise this question on the Adjournment to-night.
