§ 43. Mr. SMEDLEY CROOKE
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that a large number of families, many of whom are ex-service men, are living in wooden hutments at Castle Bromwich Aerodrome, Birmingham, where the area is often flooded; and if he will take steps to see that alternative accommodation can be offered them or that these huts are replaced by brick houses?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY OF HEALTH (Mr. Shakespeare)
My right hon. Friend has been in communication for some time with the Birmingham City Council about the hutments in this area. He understands that some of the hutments have suffered from flooding, but that these are no longer occupied.
