Notes

Acton House was used for the subsidised accommodation of working staff of the Home Affairs Department. In September 1916, separate tenders were invited by the Minister of State for Home Affairs, King O'Malley, for the lease of Acton House and the Bachelors' Quarters for the purpose of Staff Boarding Houses as commercial entities.
