HC Deb 30 October 1918 vol 110 cc1498-9W

asked the First Commissioner of Works how many hotels in London have been taken over by the Government; whether those that have been left are wholly insufficient to supply the needs of the public, and particularly of officers returning from or to the front; and whether any steps have been taken, or are being taken, to supply such needs, or to prevent hotel proprietors taking advantage of the shortage of accommodation to extort extravagant prices?


Nineteen, of which three were not at the time in use as hotels. The remainder of the question does not come within the province of my Department.
