Mr Irving Albery: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the position has already reached a stage in which hotels in London are refusing to accept guests unless they bring their own linen?
Mr Irving Albery: asked the Minister of Health if any local authorities outside the London area have applied for an allotment of Uni-seco type hutments; have any of these been allotted; and, if so, how many.
Mr Irving Albery: Can my right hon. and learned Friend say whether local authorities have any facilities for acquiring these Uni-seco hutments?
Mr Irving Albery: In view of the speed, economy and facility with which these huts can be obtained, is my right hon. and learned Friend satisfied that the present housing plans of the Government will cope with the emergency without using these huts?
Mr Irving Albery: asked the Minister of Health if any estimate has been made of the number of Uni-seco type hutments, which could be supplied and erected throughout the country within the next 12 months, as emergency dwellings.
Mr Irving Albery: asked the Secretary of State for Air if men over 30 years of age, who signed on for a further period of service in the R.A.F. as an alternative to being transferred to the Army, will now be given the opportunity of reconsidering the obligation taken.
Mr Irving Albery: asked the Minister of Food whether he can introduce some arrangement which will reduce the amount of queueing which now has to be done.
Mr Irving Albery: asked the Minister of Food whether he can do anything to bring about a more equitable distribution of offal, in view of the smallness of the meat ration.
Mr Irving Albery: Does my right hon. and gallant Friend really believe that offal is at present fairly distributed? Is he inviting householders to communicate with him?
Mr Irving Albery: I shall send my right hon. and gallant Friend a large number of communications.
Mr Irving Albery: The same year?
Mr Irving Albery: May I ask my right hon. Friend whether he cannot say that the Bank of England, the banks and all the principal financial institutions in this country have given the most loyal co-operation to the Government?
Mr Irving Albery: Will the position of men recently transferred over the age of 30 be affected by what my right hon. Friend has announced?
Mr Irving Albery: asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he has considered the possibility of granting a special petrol ration for travel during the summer holidays.
Mr Irving Albery: May I ask the right hon. and gallant Gentleman whether, if the war in Europe terminates before that time, he will then reconsider the matter?
Mr Irving Albery: asked the Secretary of State for War with reference to increase of the monetary award to go with the Victoria Cross and any other decoration, if he can state that such increases will also be paid to earlier holders of these decorations as from the same date as the increases become operative.
Mr Irving Albery: Is the Minister aware that many of these houses are empty, that there is no caretaking of any kind, and that very considerable deterioration is taking place?
Mr Irving Albery: Can the Minister say what proportions of the allocations have been made to rural district councils?
Mr Irving Albery: Is the Minister not aware that considerable dissatisfaction arises because of the fact that the troops are given to understand that there will be leave after certain periods, such as every six months, but that the allocations made to the units do not at all bear that out, and that leads to dissatisfaction?
Mr Irving Albery: asked the Minister of Health the grounds of urgency under which it was decided to certify, under Section 2 of the Rules Publication Act, the National Health Insurance Arrears Amendment Regulations, 1944 (S.R. & O., No. 1466, of 1944).
