asked the Secretary of State for War why permission was given for the rebuilding of the Harringay sports arena; if he is aware that many bomb-damaged houses in the borough have not yet been rendered habitable; and if, in view of the shortage of housing accommodation, he will transfer the labour from the Harringay arena to more important work.

asked the Secretary of State for War what is the value of the licence granted for work on the Harringay Stadium; how many men are employed; and if he is aware of the feeling in Hornsey and neighbouring badly-bombed boroughs at the use of man-power on this type of work.

This stadium is being used as an Army depot and it is necessary for its proper functioning to make good air-raid damage there. Work estimated to cost £7,500 is being carried out and 14 men are at present being employed there.
