HC Deb 07 December 1920 vol 135 c1942W
Colonel NEWMAN

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that an unoccupied hutment camp at Hazeley Down, near Twyford, is being dismantled although it has the water laid on, a perfect drainage system, expensive new roads, and many garden plots laid out, and would therefore provide housing accommodation at a cost very much below that required to build cottages which are proposed;. whether, in the interests of housing or of public economy, this demolition will not be proceeded with while labourers in the neighbourhood are anxious to occupy these huts, which could be converted into bungalows at a cost not exceeding £150; and whether he is aware that this demolition has been authorised for the purpose of finding employment for certain unemployed men?


I am making inquiries, and will communicate further with the hon. and gallant Member on this matter.
