HC Deb 21 January 1958 vol 580 c145W
97 and 98. Mr. Gooch

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government (1) how many hutted camps are still in civilian occupation; and the number of persons living in such camps;

(2) if he will urge local authorities with hutted camps in their areas occupied by civilian families to provide other suitable accommodation for them and clear the camps.

Mr. H. Brooke

I am continually urging local authorities to provide alternative accommodation for families living in hutted camps; I am furnishing the hon. Member with copies of circulars which have been sent to them. Both the number of camps still in civilian occupation and the number of persons living in them are steadily diminishing. Details are published in the Housing Return every quarter.
