asked the Minister of Works if he will provide a complete list of properties, including houses, held or occupied by all Government Departments in the city of Edinburgh and the approximate date in each instance when these will be made available for other purposes.

I assume the hon. Member refers to properties held on requisition only. On that assumption the list of properties held by my Department and the approximate dates of release are as follows:

Type of Property.No.Approximate date of release, where known.
Dwelling Houses (of which 5 are occupied for hostel or residential purposes)201 within 1 month
Hotels51 within 6 months
Offices62 within 6 months
Factories and Warehouses213 within 1 month
I regret that I am unable to give similar information in the case of the Service Departments.
