HC Deb 29 July 1952 vol 504 cc118-9W
116. Mr. Vane

asked the Minister of Works how long he intends to continue the requisition of the house in Westmorland, particulars of which he has been sent.

Mr. Eccles

So far it has not been possible to find any suitable alternative premises and the requisition will continue until a new building can be erected. A site is being purchased for this purpose but at present, as my hon. Friend knows, there is a ban on the building of new offices.
