Sir G. Fox

asked the Secretary of State for Air the number of married quarters under construction in the Suez Canal zone; how many of these will be occupied by families evacuated from Egypt; and how many further applications for married quarters have been accepted.

Mr. de Freitas

There are already 104 married quarters in the Canal zone and 265 more are being built. 279 will be needed for families already in Egypt. At present there are 663 families waiting in the United Kingdom for married quarters in Egypt to become available.
