asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that difficulty is being experienced by the residents of requisitioned flats in obtaining facilities for storing their summer allocation of coal; and what decision he has reached on the proposals submitted to him by some local authorities for the provision of bunkers to enable the summer allocation of coal to be bought and stored by the tenants concerned.

I have approved proposals by various local authorities to provide coal bunkers in converted requisitioned premises. If the hon. Member has any particular case in mind, I shall be glad to make inquiries.
