§ 61. Mr. Dodds
asked the Secretary of State for War how many of his Department's houses were without tenants at the latest convenient date; how many have been empty for over six months; what is the longest period a house has been untenanted; where the empty houses are situated; and, in view of the shortage of houses, what is to be done with them.
§ Mr. Profumo
In general quarters are only empty on a change of occupant, when they are being modernised, or when we are getting rid of them. I shall write to the hon. Gentleman with details as soon as possible.
