§ Sir K. WOOD
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he proposes to grant any extension of time to Mr. W. E. Dudley, of Woolwich, an ex-soldier who is unable to find suitable housing accommodation for himself, his wife, and five children, and against whom he recently obtained an eviction order?
§ Mr. WALSH
Mr. Dudley, who is in irregular occupation of a quarter urgently required for a serving soldier, was first warned to vacate it on 31st January last, so that he has already had more than five months in which to find other accommodation. I regret that in justice to the rightful occupant of the quarter I cannot grant Mr. Dudley an extension, but I understand he is 2279W employed by a provincial football club and I am communicating with the secretary of that organisation to inquire whether they can do anything for him in the matter of accommodation.
