At Holmfirth, where the housing shortage has been made more acute by the recent floods, 80 mothers and children arrived from London last night, and more are expected to-day. If, as expected, there are further arrivals next week, it is likely that wide use will have to be made of compulsory billeting powers.
Holmfirth Flood Relief Fund now totals £13,900.
