§ 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 132W 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.
