§ 24. Sir MALCOLM MACNAGHTEN
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that the Irish Sailors and Soldiers Trust have not as yet erected any cottages for ex-service men in the Coleraine urban district, in the county of Londonderry, although soon after the constitution of the trust six years ago 10 cottages were allocated to that district; and whether he will hasten the erection of these 10 cottages and, in view of the fact that more than 1,200 volunteers from Coleraine served in the War and cottages for ex-service men are urgently needed there, he will take steps to secure that a fair proportion of additional cottages are allocated to and erected in that district without undue delay?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I am informed that a contract has now been placed for the erection of the cottages referred to, and that they should be completed by April next.
