HC Deb 06 December 1939 vol 355 c638
33. Mr. Craven-Ellis

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether the huts it is proposed to erect to accommodate evacuated civil servants will be erected on plans and in locations which will admit of their being utilised as holiday camps, or for other peaceful purposes, after the war, so that the expenditure incurred may become a national asset?

The First Commissioner of Works (Mr. Ramsbotham)

Wherever possible, the considerations mentioned will be taken into account, but the predominating factors must necessarily be availability of communications and of billets, supply of materials, speed of construction, etc.
