§ Sir E. Grigg
All the facilities at and near railroad stations which are available to the ordinary travelling public are at the disposal of troops; and every effort is being made, as I have just said, to provide sufficient accommodation free of charge. Extra facilities, available only to troops, are already provided at or near many main line stations. For example, near the main line termini in London there are 31 hostels capable of providing sleeping accommodation for over 3,500 men each night at prices ranging from 1s. 3d. to 2s. 6d. a night for bed and breakfast.
