My officers have been in touch with those of the London County Council on this matter for some time, and although the difficulty of finding alternative accommodation without prejudicing the interests of the acute sick and of casualties is very great, I have already arranged to move some of the aged and infirm from London hospitals, and hope to arrange to move a large number more very shortly.
