asked the Minister of Health if he intends to continue in force the Housing (Temporary Accommodation) Act, 1944, and to amend Section 6 (6) thereof, to provide that once temporary bungalows have been erected on land in which a local authority is in possession pursuant to an authorisation under that section, such land, when no longer required for temporary bungalows may be used by the local authority for any purpose for which they are enabled to hold land.

There is nothing in this Section as it stands to prevent land used for the erection of temporary houses being subsequently appropriated for any other approved purpose for which a local authority are empowered to acquire land.
