HC Deb 19 November 1942 vol 385 c536W
Sir G. Jeffreys

asked the Secretary of State for War how many soldiers will be under canvas this winter; and whether he will take steps to avoid the use of such accommodation?

Mr. A. Henderson

Under 2 per cent. of the Army at home were under canvas on 3rd November and the number is being rapidly reduced. I can assure my hon. and gallant Friend that canvas accommodation will be used as little as possible during the winter.
