§ Major Symonds
asked the Secretary of State for War the total number of 262W premises, showing dwelling houses and other accommodation, separately, which have been requisitioned by his Department in the borough of Cambridge; the numbers still under requisition, subdivided as to those occupied and those unoccupied; the periods for which the unoccupied premises have been standing empty and the dates on which they will be derequisitioned.
§ Mr. Lawson
As numerous properties have been requisitioned, derequisitioned and transferred to other departments on various different occasions throughout the war, I regret that the information asked for by the hon. and gallant Member in the first part of his Question is not readily available. The War Department at present holds 17 dwelling houses in the borough of Cambridge, all of which are occupied. Nine other properties are held, of which two are empty. These two properties are no longer required for military purposes and, provided they are not required by any other Government Department, they will be derequisitioned shortly.
