§ Sir C. Edwards
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that Mr. Bishop, 4, Brookland View, New Tredegar, Monmouthshire, was discharged from the Mercantile Marine and has been living, together with his wife and two children, with the wife's relatives; that now the relatives have left he is in possession of the house; that he has no furniture, never having a home of his own although married for over three years; that he has applied for the necessary permission to secure utility furniture but so far has had no reply; and will he have inquiries made so as to relieve these people.
§ Captain Waterhouse
My right hon. Friend has not previously communicated with me about this case. My inquiries lead me to believe that the facts do not accord with the statement in his Question. Mr. Bishop received a permit for 24 units in February, 1944, which he has not used.
