HC Deb 29 May 1963 vol 678 cc133-4W
63. Mr. Hopkins

asked the Secretary of State for War how many married service men stationed at Aden are now without married quarters; and when there will be sufficient married quarters to accommodate service men's families.

Mr. Profumo

Excluding service men on one-year tours and those who have not applied for official accommodation, there are 1,177 entitled married Army service men in Aden. Of these, 801 are in married quarters or hirings, 170 have their families with them in private accommodation and the remaining 206 are separated. The ultimate extent of the married accommodation to be provided in Aden is under review.
