asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he is aware that a board is displayed at the Hotel Windsor indicating to the public that the Ministries of Reconstruction and National Service are housed at the hotel; 735W when these two Ministries ceased to occupy the hotel; where, if still in existence, they are at present housed; and when will the Hotel Windsor be freed for the accommodation of visitors to London?
§ Mr. W. J. PARKER
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second and third parts, a staff of forty-three engaged upon the liquidation of the work of the two Ministries in question is still housed in the Hotel Windsor. As regards the last part, the hotel is held by the Government on lease, and will be retained for general Government purposes.
