asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he is aware that Viceroy Court, a large block of flats in London, N.W.8, remains unoccupied 18 months after de-requisitioning; and whether he will consider re-requisitioning this block for housing purposes if it is not made available for residential use.

I deeply regret that this block of flats should remain out of commission at a time of acute housing shortage. I am asking St. Marylebone Borough Council to consider urgently the best way of bringing it back into use.
