asked the Minister of Agriculture how many members of the Women's Land Army available for agricultural employment, are now accommodated at Knowle House, Mirfield; whether they are all fully employed in agriculture; whether he is aware that the Mirfield Urban District Council, the owners, wish to have the house used as a hostel for old people; and by what date his need for the accommodation will cease.

Twenty-two members of the Women's Land Army are at present accommodated at Knowle House, Mirfield, and are fully employed in agri- culture. I am not aware of any request from the Mirfield Urban District Council for the release of this house, nor that they wish to use it as a hostel for old people. It is not possible at present to indicate when the house can be released.
