HC Deb 29 March 1956 vol 550 cc224-5W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food why the thirty-one houses in Cumberland Terrace. Regent's Park, are standing vacant, as they have been for over a year.

Mr. Amory

Thirty houses in Cumberland Terrace, including one let on lease, are at present vacant. The University of London has been negotiating for a tenancy of the Terrace for use as a students' hostel. Its possible conversion for this purpose has involved difficult questions of method and cost, and negotiations have not yet been concluded. The twenty-nine houses in hand are meanwhile being suitably maintained.
