HC Deb 09 November 1939 vol 353 cc448-9W
Mr. R. Morģan

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether it is now proposed to make any use of the seaside hotel in Lancashire which was requisitioned on 7th September, and which, over eight weeks later, is still unoccupied?

Mr. Ramsbotham

I am afraid that, generally speaking, it is not possible for me at present to surrender the hotels which have been requisitioned. I can assure my hon. Friend that the whole question is constantly under review, and no building will be retained for a day longer than necessary.
