asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how many properties are still held under requisition by his Department; if he will order a new investigation into the circumstances of each case; and if he will direct that prior consideration be given to the original owner, or owners, whenever a sale is contemplated.

Two hundred and seventy-six properties are still held on requisition by the Admiralty. These requisitions are kept under constant review. Requisitioned property remains vested in the owner, and, therefore, the third part of the Question does not arise.
