HC Deb 20 November 1946 vol 430 c116W
86. Mr. Lipson

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he is aware that it is proposed to move a considerable section of the Control Commission, from Bünde in Westphalia to Berlin; that, since there is no furniture to meet their needs in Berlin, all billet, married family and office furniture is to be moved with them from Bünde to Berlin; and how such action can be reconciled with his guarantee that no further property of this kind would be requisitioned from the Germans.

88. Mr. Birch

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster why orders have been given that furniture and effects requisitioned in the British zone for the use of the Internal Affairs and Communications Division of the Control Commission for Germany shall be removed to Berlin.

94. Mr. Skeffington-Lodge

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he will rescind the order under which it is possible for personnel in certain branches of the Control Commission at Bünde, Germany, to strip requisitioned German property of its furniture and contents on the occasion of the transfer of their functions to new quarters in Berlin.

Mr. J. Hynd

Certain units of the Control Commission are being moved to Berlin, and to avoid further requisitioning of furniture in that city they are taking with them their office furniture from Bünde. This consists mainly of Army issues. No billet or married families furniture is being moved, and no further requisitioning of furniture will be necessary for the vacated premises at Bünde.
