HC Deb 20 June 1950 vol 476 cc99-100W
97. Mr. Peter Smithers

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will postpone any further evictions from Hiltingbury Camp, Chandlers Ford, until a satisfactory agreement has been reached with Eastleigh borough council as to the reception or housing of the persons to be evicted.

Mr. Strachey

While the grave shortage of Army married accommodation makes it impossible for me to give an assurance in these terms, I am prepared to allow these ex-Service families a reasonable extension of time.
