§ 99. Mr. A. Edwards
asked the Minister of Works when it is proposed to give up Ardencaple Nursing Home in Middlesbrough, partially occupied by the Man-Power Board; and if he is aware that for two years pressure has been brought to bear upon the local officers and alternative accommodation suggested, in spite of which nothing has been done towards evacuating this nursing home which is used mainly for maternity cases.
§ Mr. Durbin
I am aware of the circumstances of this case. My officers have made continuous efforts to rehouse this staff, and alternative premises are now in view. If these can be secured and adapted to the requirements of the Ministry of Labour, it will then be possible to release this house.
