HC Deb 06 March 1947 vol 434 cc91-2W
Lieut.-Commander Hutchison

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power the number of premises, formerly used as hotels and dwelling-houses, respectively, which are already occupied by the National Coal Board in Edinburgh; if he will give the number of premises in each of the above categories which are in process of transfer to the National Coal Board; and if he will give the estimated number of additional premises which are likely to be re- quired in Edinburgh for the use of the National Coal Board.

Mr. Shinwell

I have no information as to what premises are occupied or are required by the National Coal Board in Edinburgh except that part of the Scottish Divisional Coal Board is temporarily accommodated in part of the Regional Offices of the Ministry in Edinburgh, because they cannot find other accommodation.
