asked the Minister of Works whether he is aware of the hardship which will ensue as a result of the determination of the tenancy, on 31st July next, of the Hackney Borough Council of the premises No. 2, Reading Lane, Hackney, E.8, used as a local fuel office; and what steps he proposes to take to ensure that new premises are found which are as convenient to local residents.

The premises are required to complete a medical examination centre and local office for the Ministry of Pensions and National Insurance. This will be a great convenience to pensioners and disabled persons resident in East London who now have to travel to Bloomsbury. My Department is giving all possible help to the borough council in finding alternative premises.
