asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will allocate three out of the 524 houses, requisitioned by him in Gloucestershire, to the Air Training Corps as permanent headquarters at Stroud, Stow-on-the-Wold and Wotton-under-Edge?

In view of the special circumstances in this case, arrangements have been made for the Air Training Corps to use a house at Stow-on-the-Wold and a house at Stroud has been offered to them. If a suitable house is available at Wotton-under-Edge similar arrangements will be made there. I must, however, emphasise that these houses are requisitioned for a specific military purpose. They can only be loaned temporarily to the Air Training Corps who will have to vacate them as soon as they are needed.
