HC Deb 23 June 1948 vol 452 c144W
89. Mr. Stokes

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that the house at No. 29 Feldstrasse, Peine, Hann, was requisitioned in the summer of 1945 when accommodation for many Germans was taken by a British officer and his wife and two children; that for eight months now the house has been standing empty; and whether he will now give instructions that the house is to be de-requisitioned and returned to its rightful owners.

Mr. McNeil

Number 29, Feldstrasse, Peine, was requisitioned in June, 1945, for use as Army billets and was so used continuously until January, 1947. The premises were not occupied as a married quarter until 22nd January, 1947. They were handed over to the Control Commission by the Army on 18th March, 1948. It was then thought that they would be required for a civilian family, but this has now proved not to be the case and they have been de-requisitioned.
