HC Deb 18 December 1946 vol 431 cc389-90W
93. Mr. Stokes

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is satisfied with the living conditions in Unit No. 2, R.S. and B.U., S.E.A.A.F., in the Singapore area; and if he is aware that the best house on the camp, hitherto used for living accommodation for the men, has been taken over as a workshop and the men transferred to a rat-ridden outhouse.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

As a result of the Japanese occupation, living conditions at many stations in Singapore are not up to the standard we should like, and improvements are being carried out as quickly as possible. Thirty men were temporarily housed in a workshop but had to be moved to barracks when the building was needed for its original purpose.
