asked the Minister of Works the number of houses, factories and public buildings now requisitioned in Great Britain and Northern Ireland, respectively.

Four thousand, two hundred and thirty-one houses and 362 premises of local authorities and public utility undertakings were held on requisition by Government Departments in Great Britain on 31st March, 1947. I am informed by my right hon. and learned friend the President of the Board of Trade that 17,000,000 square feet of industrial space are held on requisition in Great Britain of which 13,000,000 square feet are in process of being released. Information about requisitions in Northern Ireland is not readily available.
