asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the difficulty experienced in the Chepping Wycombe reception area in finding householders who are able financially to provide full board and lodging for evacuated boys of the Chiswick County School and the Shoreditch Technical Institute for a payment of 12s. 6d. per week for boys of 15 years of age and of 15s. for boys of 16 and 17 years of age; and whether he will see his way to increase these allowances?

I hope to be in a position to make a statement with regard to billeting allowances in the near future.
