asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Buildings how many hotels have been requisitioned by his Department in each of the last six months, and which are the Ministries on whose behalf such action was taken?

Mr. Hicks

The number of hotels requisitioned in each of the past six months to date is as follows:

October 20
November 3
January, 1941 4

The figure for April, to date, is three.

I do not think it advisable to disclose the various purposes for which these premises were taken, but if my hon. Friend will get into touch with me, I will willingly tell him in confidence.
