Mr. Powell

asked the Minister of Works how many square feet of buildings were held on requisition for use by Government Departments on 31st October, 1951, and on the latest date for which figures are available.

I regret that this information is not available. The number of buildings held, excluding those used for housing purposes, was 4,066 on 30th September, 1951, and 86? on 31st March, 1955.
