HC Deb 09 July 1924 vol 175 cc2278-9W

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. 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 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.
