§ Captain GANZONI
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the Curzon Club, Reading, is a working men's club and that the premises 740W were given up for war hospital purposes, but are now being used by a very small number of men for physical drill and gymnastic purposes; whether he has received any representations that the premises should be vacated by the military authorities; and, if so, when it is proposed that these premises shall be returned to the members of the club?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The Curzon Club, Reading, has been adapted at some considerable expense to the War Department as a centre for curative treatment of military orthopædic cases. The physical drill and gymnastics referred to form an important part in the cure of these cases. I am informed that about 100 men are treated daily at the club, and that the treatment is of great importance. I understand that the military medical authorities are about to approach the representatives of the club locally with regard to the continued occupation of the premises.
