asked the Minister of Works whether, in view of the release by the War Office of the Kington Camp, Herefordshire, he will now release a portion of this camp for the relief of the housing shortage in the district.

I am consulting the Ministry of Health and other Government Departments so that the future use of the camp can be settled as soon as possible.

When are the various Ministries going to make up their minds what they want to do with this camp? Squatters are already taking possession of some of it, and if the right hon. Gentleman does not make a quick decision they will take possession of the lot.

This camp has only recently been declared by the Department concerned to be redundant. I am asking the Ministry of Health and other Departments concerned to let me have a quick reply.
