I beg to second the Amendment. I have also had brought to my observation similar instances of houses being so used. Near a village in the constituency which I have the honour to represent there are seven iron stone quarries and many of the men have to walk many miles to their work. Close to the village there are one or two houses, and of which is used as an apple storehouse for the squire of the village. In this age when there is such a great shortage and when men are being urged to give greater output, there ought to be some regard for these men who should be given every facility to live in close proximity to their work.
