§ Mr. Kershaw
asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he is satisfied with the number and quality of barrack places and married quarters available for troops and their families returning home in the next 12 months; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Boyden
Yes. Apart from possible withdrawals from Europe, some addtional camps have been, or are being reactivated to meet the increased requirement in the U.K. Work is programmed to ensure that when troops are returned sufficient accommodation of an adequate standard will be available. I gave details to the House on 27th February 1967 of preparations being made to accommodate families.
