HC Deb 06 July 1954 vol 529 c152W
77. Mr. Mayhew

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what priority he gives to applications for accommodation in new towns from ex-Service men evicted from married quarters.

Mr. H. Macmillan

In the London new towns, applications for houses from Reguand ex-Regular Service men who have secured employment in the town are considered if the Service man lived in Greater London before entering the Services or if his family live in London when the application is made. The provincial new towns have a similar scheme, and all the corporations are sympathetic to the needs of the Service men.
