HC Deb 06 December 1939 vol 355 cc638-9
41. Mr. R. Morgan

asked the First Commissioner of Works how many more hotels have been commandeered in each of the last five weeks; and why, in the case of a Southern resort, another hotel has been commandeered within the last few days despite the fact that there were three empty houses immediately adjoining it?

Mr. Ramsbotham

Apart from one hotel which was requisitioned for the Department of Health, Scotland, on 6th November last for an emergency hospital, no other hotel has been requisitioned by my Department during the last five weeks. I have no knowledge of the hotel to which my hon. Friend refers.
