asked the Minister of Works what steps are being taken to ensure that all structures, equipment, furnishings and accessories that have been used for the accommodation of U.S. Forces are, on relinquishment, made available for the housing of people for whom no other accommodation is available.
When the American camps are no longer required by the Service Departments and are handed over to my Ministry for disposal, I will gladly consider in conjunction with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Health their use for housing purposes. Any suitable equipment which is redundant will be retained for disposal with the camp.
