HC Deb 08 March 1946 vol 420 cc131-2W
Mr. Battley

asked the Secretary of State for War how many acres of land in parks, commons and open spaces in the County of London are now occupied by the services; and whether, in view of the recent encroachments made on these open spaces for temporary housing he is now in a position to say when they will be returned to the local authorities for the common use of the people.

Mr. Lawson

Approximately 287 acres of land are at present held within the County of London. As regards the second part of the Question, I am not in a position to add anything to the reply given to my hon. Friend on 19th November last.
