HC Deb 19 November 1940 vol 365 cc1853-4W
Sir T. Moore

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Home Security, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, how many buildings requisitioned by his Department have not yet been used and are remaining empty?

Mr. Mabane

Some 35 requisitioned buildings have not yet been used for the purpose originally intended, but arrangements have been made with the Service Departments to place at their disposal accommodation not immediately required by the Ministry of Works and Buildings. In addition, some private houses have been taken over for billeting purposes, and the same arrangement has been made in regard to them also.
