HC Deb 25 February 1920 vol 125 c1713W

asked the Secretary of State for War to what extent the Strand Union Workhouse, Silver Street, Edmonton, is now used for military purposes; whether he is aware that this building, or a portion of it, is urgently required by the Ministry of Labour for the treatment of disabled soldiers under the direction of the Middlesex Training Council; and if he will take steps for the surrender of the necessary buildings at an early date?


This extension is the only remaining orthopædic hospital in the Eastern Command, and to vacate it at present is impossible, as it is still being used for the treatment of disabled soldiers not yet discharged to pension. Steps are, however, being taken to admit pensioners as well for treatment and training concurrently.
