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.
