§ Sir A. Bossom
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food why the thirty-one houses in Cumberland Terrace. 225W Regent's Park, are standing vacant, as they have been for over a year.
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.
