asked the Minister of Works when the new temporary office building to be erected in Aberdeen is to be completed

Mr. Stokes

Tenders for this project are at present under consideration and subject to a satisfactory contract being let it is hoped that the building will be completed early in 1952.

Can the right hon. Gentleman say when he will release the many residential premises which are held by his Department and now used for office buildings?

Mr. Stokes

In so far as they are affected by this, as soon as possible thereafter.
