HC Deb 02 April 1946 vol 421 c1085
22. Briģadier Low

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will give an assurance that British troops in Germany arc not billeted in non-residential premises, when residential premises exist in the required area.

Mr. Lawson

In order to ensure the most satisfactory grouping of units and sub-units, it is necessary to use non-residential premises in some cases. But the policy aimed at is ultimately to house all troops in ex-German barracks.
