§ 21. Sir G. Fox
asked the Secretary of State for War when he anticipates that the Army huts at Coombe Park, Whitchurch, Oxfordshire, will be removed; under what agreement they were erected; and why no rent has been paid for the use of the ground for these huts.
§ Mr. Bellenger
I regret I am unable to forecast when the huts will be removed. The land on which they are erected was requisitioned by my Department in January, 1943, under Defence Regulation 51. The owners agents were invited to make a claim for rental compensation, under the Compensation (Defence) Act, 1939, on two occasions but no reply or claim has been received.
