HC Deb 27 January 1947 vol 432 c582
19. Lieut.-Commander Gurney Braithwaite

asked the Minister of Works whether the land occupied by the military camp at Leven, East Yorkshire, has now been released by the military; and whether it is in the occupation of another Department.

Mr. Tomlinson

I understand that the Army camp at Leven, East Yorks, has not yet been released by the War Department, but is now in process of being handed over to the Ministry of Health.

Lieut.-Commander Braithwaite

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Leven parish council have made several attempts to extract this information from his Department without success; and in view 'of the fact that squatters are now in occupation of some of these huts, can the matter be cleared up as soon as possible?

Mr. Tomlinson

Until the camp is handed over by the War Office, it does not come within the jurisdiction of my Department.
