asked the Minister of Works if he will rescind the licence for the demolition of buildings adjoining St. Hugh's College, Oxford, in view of the shortage of hospital beds for certain purposes in Oxfordshire and the proved usefulness of these buildings in the last war.

No; the work is already in progress. Before issuing the licence I took into account all the representations which were made to me. These did not include any suggestion that the buildings should be used as a hospital in peacetime.
