HC Deb 17 April 1946 vol 421 cc459-60W
Mr. Asterley Jones

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that numbers of huts at Letchworth Gate, Letchworth, Hertfordshire, are not being used and are deteriorating; and whether he will take immediate steps to dispose of them.

Mr. Lawson

Investigations as to whether this hutting was still required for War Department purposes have only recently been completed. The huts have now been declared surplus to military requirements and instructions have been issued for the transfer of nine Romney huts in situ to the Ministry of Works on behalf of the N.F.S. Instructions have also been given for the remaining huts to be reported to the Ministry of Works for disposal in the normal manner.
