§ Mr. H. Hynd
asked the Minister of Works if he is aware of the disadvantages associated with the building-lessor scheme; and whether it is his intention to bring this to an end.
§ Mr. Stokes
Nearly all these building-lessor schemes were planned in order to release requisitioned accommodation as quickly as possible. I am aware that they have certain disadvantages and no new schemes are being authorised. The position is under review having regard to the needs and effect of the defence programme.
