§ Lieut.-Colonel Byers
asked the Secretary of State for War what welfare facilities will exist for serving men and women in Sherbourne after the closing of the Toe H club; and what is the number of serving men and women in the area.
§ Mr. Lawson
All the units in question have the normal canteen and other facilities. In addition there is a W.V.S. canteen and hostel, with seating capacity of 250 for meals, and several canteens in Yeovil. The Toe H club was used mainly by naval personnel in the local hospital, which has a canteen. Apart from the naval personnel, there are about 1, 870 Service men and 100 Service women in the area.
