HC Deb 17 February 1944 vol 397 c327
23. Sir Leonard Lyle

asked the Minister of Health, whether the camps which in October, 1939, were then in process of construction have all been completed; and what present use is being made of each one of them.

Mr. Willink

The camps, 31 in number, were completed by 1940. One of these is occupied by an evacuated orphanage, the others, with one exception, are occupied by local education authorities of vulnerable areas for the accommodation of school children together with the necessary teachers and staff.

Mr. Kenneth Lindsay

Is my right hon. and learned Friend aware that there has been an increasing attendance during the last two years at these camps, and will he, together with the President of the Board of Education, have a further look into this matter?

Mr. Willink

I will certainly examine that, but it hardly arises on this question.
