§ Mr. JOYNSON-HICKS
asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he is still commandeering houses in Queen's Gate; and why, at this stage of the War, it is necessary to put the country to further expense in this way?
§ Sir A. MOND
Certain empty houses in Queen's Gate are being acquired at the instance of the Pensions Ministry to provide a hostel for 200 wounded soldiers whilst repair and readjustment of their artificial limbs are being effected on the premises, an object with which, I am sure, the hon. Member, like myself, is in perfect sympathy.
