HC Deb 16 February 1955 vol 537 c61W
109. Mr. Hamilton

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how many Admiralty houses in Fife are occupied by people now retired from active Admiralty service; how many of these people have now been given notice to quit their houses within three months; and what steps he intends to take at the end of that stipulated period.

Mr. Digby

One hundred and fifty-two Admiralty houses in Fife are occupied by former Admiralty employees. None of the tenants has been given notice to quit, but they have been reminded that the houses are needed for a long waiting list of Admiralty employees, now numbering 712 in the Rosyth area, and that they must make all possible efforts to find other accommodation. Any further action will necessarily depend upon the circumstances of each case. I am sending the hon. Member a copy of the letter addressed to the tenants which fully explains the matter.
