HC Deb 23 October 1945 vol 414 cc1967-8W
Lieut.-Commander Holt

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that conditions in No. 2 Holding Battalion, R.A.S.C, Southend-on-Sea, are far from satisfactory; and what steps he proposes to take to remedy this situation.

Mr. Lawson

This unit is well housed in requisitioned premises, and so far as I am aware there no grounds for complaint, apart possibly from some temporary overcrowding recently. The congestion has been relieved by the removal of 500 men to another centre.
