HC Deb 18 April 1946 vol 421 cc471-2W
Major C. Poole

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that Mr. J. Pallett, Back Lane, Hoar Cross, near Burton-on-Trent, is under notice to quit his present house and that the Tutbury Rural Council have failed to provide him with alternative accommodation, although there have been several cottage, vacant in the area for long periods; and if he will compel this council to exercise its powers of requisitioning and provide this man with a house.

Mr. Bevan:

I understand that the rural district council are fully alive to Mr. Pallett's needs and 'are doing all they can to meet them, The only vacant cottages in the area, however, are in an Air Minis- try "danger" area and cannot, therefore, be occupied.
