HC Deb 12 December 1944 vol 406 cc1067-8W
Sir R. Tasker

asked the Minister of Health the number of houses requisitioned by the various Government Departments which have been unoccupied during the last three months, six months, one year, two years and three years.

Mr. Hicks

I have been asked to reply. There is no central record of requisitioned houses which would enable me to answer the hon. Member's Question. To collect the desired information from the various Departments and local authorities would involve an expenditure of time and labour which I should hesitate, under present circumstances, to authorise. I should, however, be pleased to provide the hon. Member with information about any particular properties he may care to specify.
