asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty on what terms of tenure married quarters are occupied by the families of officers and ratings of the Royal Navy.

The exact terms of tenure on which married quarters are occupied are at present under consideration. I would, however, point out that owing to the shortage of accommodation at the present time the occupation of married quarters is a privilege and it would be reasonable to expect the occupants to vacate them if Service needs necessitated their being required to do so.


asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty how many married quarters have been provided for officers and ratings, respectively, in Chatham, Gillingham and Sheerness.

There are married quarters for 23 officers and 14 ratings and other ranks in Chatham and Gillingham, and for nine officers in Sheerness.
