HC Deb 03 December 1946 vol 431 c48W
103. Mr. J. Hudson

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his Department could make use of the hutments at West Ridge Camp, Greenford, for storing records and thus free for temporary housing the hutments in Gunnersbury Park which the Ealing Town Council think are available for that purpose.

Mr. Bellenger

No, Sir. I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave him on 29th October. The hutments at Gunnersbury are being used not only for the storage of records but also as an office for over 200 clerks belonging to the Record Office in occupation, and there is no room for either at West Ridge Camp, Greenford, as half of the camp is occupied by prisoners of war and the remainder has already been handed over to the Ministry of Health for temporary housing.
