An advance decision was requested concerning an employee's claims for temporary quarters allowance for a period in which he occupied an apartment allegedly because uncertainty over his duty station delayed his purchasing a house. The claim was denied since his intention to purchase a house was too indefinite to support the conclusion that the quarters were temporary.
