HC Deb 12 February 1947 vol 433 c343
11. Mr. Teeling

asked the Secretary of State for Air if he will make a further statement about the conditions in the R.A.F. camp at Miho, Japan; and whether he has assured himself that similar conditions do not prevail in other Japanese centres.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

I have just received a report for which I called in January on conditions in the camp at Miho in Japan. This report confirms my earlier information that the offices, dining and recreation rooms are adequately heated, but that the shortage of labour and materials has prevented the, installation of heating in more than 10 per cent. of the sleeping quarters. At the other R.A.F. centres in Japan heating has been installed in all the offices and in all the communal buildings, including the sleeping quarters.
