asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that there are still Government stocks of household furniture, bedlinen and crockery being held in some reception areas and that these articles are becoming valueless through dampness and inattention; and whether he will arrange for these goods to be disposed of at reasonable prices, the first opportunity to purchase being given to people who have had household equipment worn out by housing evacuees or have lost their homes by enemy action.
