I have been asked to reply. Furniture required for houses which are to be occu- pied by homeless or evacuated people is supplied by local authorities and normally remains their property. There is consequently no question of the repayment of a loan and my right hon. Friend is not clear what scheme the hon. Member has in mind. If he will send him particulars he will be glad to look into the matter.
