HC Deb 31 January 1949 vol 460 cc191-2W
12. Mr. Low

asked the Minister of Works how many married quarters, which were scheduled to be completed in the financial year 1948–49 for the War Department and the Air Ministry, respectively, will not be completed within the financial year; and for what reason.

Mr. Key

During the financial year ending 31st March, 1949, it is hoped to put work in hand on 408 married quarters and to complete 290 quarters. The quarters are being provided as quickly as possible, but no undertaking has been given to complete a specific number within the financial year. Since the programme was started in 1946 some 402 houses or married quarters have been completed. These houses are all for the War Department: the Air Ministry have not sought my assistance.
