§ Captain Longhurst
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is now able to restore to their owners, for civilian occupation, the houses in Acton requisitioned by his Department which he recently handed over to the Office of Works and in which that Department have now revised their decision to house Italian prisoners of war.
§ Sir J. Grigg
I understand that the houses referred to will be offered to my right hon. Friend the Minister of Health as they are no longer needed by the Ministry of Works to house Italian prisoners of war. He will no doubt consider whether they can be used to alleviate the shortage of houses.
