HC Deb 23 May 1946 vol 423 cc503-4
4. Mr. Beswiek

asked the Minister of Health, why the house in Eaton Square, S.W.I, now being used by the Instituto de Espana was not requisitioned for housing purposes.

Mr. Bevan

The powers delegated to the clerks of local authorities are for the requisition of unoccupied properties. This house has been occupied throughout the war.
