asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning whether he will undertake that no objections will be made by his Department to the ample provision during the Festival Year of holiday camps and temporary hostel accommodation to accommodate the large number of students from France and other European countries who will be unable to visit Great Britain unless such additional cheap accommodation is made available for them.
