HC Deb 25 February 1919 vol 112 c1617W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will take the earliest opportunity possible of releasing for the use of civilian tenants private houses at present still in the occupation of the military; and whether this will be done within the next month or two, in view of the position now obtaining in connection with the housing problem?

Captain GUEST

All demands for the return of houses in military occupation are attended to without delay and, as demobilisation proceeds, houses are being evacuated as rapidly as possible. Wherever it is found possible to accommodate troops otherwise, they are withdrawn from houses required for rental or sale.
