§ 6. Mr. Evelyn King
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will estimate the current shortage of married quarters available to Service families stationed in the South Dorset constituency.
§ The Minister of Defence for the Royal Navy (Mr. Christopher Mayhew)
About 460. This is partly offset by the accommodation of some 240 families in Service hirings.
§ Mr. Mayhew
We have another 224 married quarters which will be completed by the middle of next year and 220-odd will be started in the subsequent three years. These should see us through.
§ Mr. David Griffiths
Is my hon. Friend aware that not only is there a lack of accommodation in married quarters, but that there are filthy and uninhabitable married quarters in some places, particularly the one in Hong Kong about which I wrote to him? Will he look into that?
