HC Deb 27 May 1952 vol 501 cc135-6W
83. Mr. Remnant

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government why there was even a small increase in the occupation of Service camp huts in England and Wales during the month of March; and whether he will circularise local authorities regarding the desirability of evacuating such dwellings.

Mr. Marples

This small increase was mainly due to the completion of conversion schemes which had been previously authorised. Large-scale evacuation of these dwellings is not yet practicable, but local authorities have been advised that huts in a bad condition should be taken out of use as soon as possible and the occupants rehoused.
