HC Deb 21 April 1947 vol 436 c601
63. Mr. Alfred Edwards

asked the Minister of Works if he will make a statement regarding the release of the Ardencaple Nursing Home in Middlesbrough.

Mr. Key

A scheme for rehousing the Ministry of Labour staff from Ardencaple in part of the employment exchange, has now been agreed, and arrangements are being made to prepare the accommodation for occupation as quickly as possible. Ardencaple will be released as soon as the space is ready, which I hope will be in three or four months' time.

Mr. Edwards

Will the Minister be good enough to keep an eye on these people, because I have had similar replies for two years and they will not leave without some kind of ejectment order being obtained against them? I hope my right hon. Friend will take some steps in time to see that they are got out of these premises.

Mr. Key

I will do my best.
