asked the Minister of Works how much property is still requisitioned under Defence Regulation No. 51; and how much has been released during the last 12 months.
Five thousand two hundred and fifty-three buildings or parts of buildings were held on requisition by Government Departments on 30th September last. One thousand six hundred and eighty-two buildings or parts of buildings have been released during the past 12 months. Houses and flats requisitioned by the Health Departments for housing purposes are not included in these figures, and land under requisition has also been excluded as the details are not immediately available.
