HC Deb 08 July 1918 vol 108 c51W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he will give the accommodation available, including staff, in the Grand Central Hotel, Belfast, when used as a hotel, the estimated accommodation as now arranged for Queen Mary's Army Auxiliary Corps, and the average number of women actually accommodated nightly for each week since the corps has been in possession?


I am informed that when used as a hotel the Grand Central Hotel contained 233 rooms, exclusive of attic accommodation for thirty servants. The building is now capable of providing accommodation for 476 members of the Queen Mary's Army Auxiliary Corps. The numbers actually housed in the hotel fluctuates, but the average for the period from the middle of March last is about 200.
