asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the major problem of billeting in many areas is that of the mothers accompanying the children; and whether in some cases temporary separation can be suggested.

In some cases separation of members of the family may be inevitable, but I am taking measures to secure as much accommodation as possible of a kind suited to the large family so that the breaking up of families may be kept to a minimum.—
