HC Deb 27 May 1952 vol 501 c136W
87. Mr. Driberg

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he is aware of the predicament an airman's wife, of whose identity he has been informed, who has a young child, is expecting another in September, is under notice to quit her present lodging, and is unable to secure accommodation from the Witham, Essex Urban District Council, or in an unoccupied hut at the Polish camp controlled by the National Assistance Board at Rivenhall; and if he will consult with the National Assistance Board with a view to the release of these unoccupied huts for emergency housing in this and similar cases.

Mr. Marples

My right hon. Friend understands that this lady has found lodgings in one of the Witham Urban District Council's houses. Her application for permanent accommodation will be considered together with others on the authority's list when houses are available for letting.
