§ 10. Mr. Bowden
asked the Secretary of State for War when he will derequisition the Victoria Hall, 144, London Road, Leicester, as the continued occupation by the Army Records Office is causing serious inconvenience to the blinded persons who formerly used the hall.
§ Mr. Shinwell
The inconvenience to the blinded persons who formerly used the hall is fully appreciated, but I regret that I am still unable to forecast when the Victoria Hall will be derequisitioned. Every effort is being made to find a suitable alternative property, but the accommodation situation generally is so acute that I cannot hold out hope of early success.
