HC Deb 30 November 1964 vol 703 c5W
59. Mr. Braine

asked the Secretary of State for Defence why he has not replied to a letter from the hon. Member for South-East Essex, dated 28th October last, concerning the eviction of a constituent from War Department property on Foulness Island, which is to take effect in seven days' time; and what action he has taken to avoid hardship in this case.

Mr. Reynolds

I sent a full reply on 27th November. A court order was obtained on 12th October for possession of the quarter on 12th December, when there will have been irregular occupation for over five months. In order to give the occupant a further opportunity to find alternative accommodation, I am willing to allow him to remain until 15th January, 1965.
