§ 44. Mr. A. R. W. Low
asked the Secretary of State for War how many married quarters have been built at home and overseas for officers and other ranks in the current financial year.
§ The Secretary of State for War (Mr. Strachey)
By the end of the current financial year it is estimated that permanent married quarters will have been completed for 118 officers and 748 other ranks at home and for 44 officers and 110 other ranks overseas; this should give a total of 1,020 permanent married quarters completed in the 12 months.
§ Mr. Porter
Can my right hon. Friend say whether those people who are compelled to live in private quarters receive any assistance in regard to the extra costs incurred through lack of married quarters?
§ Mr. Strachey
Yes, Sir. There is a scheme in that connection, but in an answer to a supplementary question I cannot give details.
