asked the Minister of Works what representations he has received on the necessity of repairs to football grounds which suffered damage during enemy raids and at which spectators are exposed to the inclemency of the weather; and if reconstruction facilities will be permitted in such cases.

In so far as work of this typecan proceed without interference with housing and other priority work, it has been and will be permitted.
