HC Deb 22 January 1947 vol 432 cc49-50W
87. Mr. Symonds

asked the Secretary of State for Air what arrangements have been made for the heating of the offices and living quarters at the British Commonwealth Air Station, Japan.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

I understand that my hon. Friend is referring to the station at Miho in Japan. Steam heating has been installed in the recreation rooms and messes and the main buildings containing the offices are heated by oil stoves and electric fires. I regret to say, however, that according to the latest progress report, only 10 per cent, of the sleeping quarters are at present heated. I have called for a further report, and I will write to my hon. Friend when it has been received
