HC Deb 02 March 1926 vol 192 cc1211-2
19. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Secretary of State for War what is the situation with regard to the tank training grounds and ranges at Lulworth Cove, when does he propose to evacuate the district, and where is it proposed to establish these training grounds and firing ranges in the future?


The arrangements under which the War Department are in occupation of the land at Lulworth hold good until 31st August, 1929. The scheme for the provision of an alternative site is not sufficiently advanced to enable me to make any statement in answer to the second and third parts of the question.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

In case the right hon. Gentleman can make these arrangements for an alternative site, does he propose to evacuate this beauty spot before 1929?


That is a hypothetical question.
