HC Deb 28 January 1947 vol 432 c157W
100. Mr. Collins

asked the Secretary of State for War whether in view of the fact that a large proportion of our Forces in Palestine are still in semi-permanent tented camps involving avoidable hardship, he will arrange to improve their conditions by the provision of amenities such as electric light in the tents, iron bedsteads and china or enamel plates.

Mr. Bellenger

With regard to electric light I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave on 19th November to the hon. and gallant Member for Barnstaple (Brigadier Peto) of which I am sending him a copy. I have called for a report on the provision of bedsteads and plates and will write to my hon. Friend.
