§ 78. Mr. ALFRED SHORT
asked the First Commissioner of Works how many huts have been erected in and around London since the signing of the Armistice; the area covered by them; which staffs have been moved into them, which commandeered premises have been thereby vacated; and the total number of staffs removed to such huts?
§ Sir A. MOND
Three schemes of hutting have been undertaken since the Armistice, covering an area of about 175,000 square feet; all are being occupied as and when completed by staffs of the Ministry of Pensions appointed since the Armistice; about 1,320 staff are already in occupation, and at least 1,000 more will be installed when the whole are completed. The staffs being additional, no requisitioned premises have been vacated, but further requisitioning has been avoided to the extent indicated.
