HC Deb 26 February 1920 vol 125 cc1925-6W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the military authorities in Hamilton have warned certain tenants residing in married quarters at Saffronhall Crescent to remove; whether, amongst the numbers so warned out there is a Mrs. Dove, whose husband was killed on service during the War; whether he is aware that Mrs. Dove has been a tenant in these quarters since they were taken over by the military, and that she has made every attempt possible to find a house in the locality since being warned out and she has failed; and will he, in view of all the circumstances, allow her to retain possession of her present house until she either succeeds in finding a house herself or suitable alternative ac commodation is provided for her by the military authorities?


Mrs. Dove was allowed to reside in Government quarters temporarily as a privilege. As already explained in a letter to the hon. Member, the premises are now required by the military authorities for accommodating permanent staff, for whom no other quarters are available. Every consideration has been shown to Mrs. Dove, and it is regretted that she cannot be allowed to remain in occupation.
