HC Deb 12 July 1938 vol 338 c1089
13. Mr. Day

asked the Secretary of State for War how many permanent antiaircraft camps are at present in existence which meet the full requirements of the military and Royal Air Force authorities and also provide full facilities for training and firing practice; and are they sufficient to meet the Government's expanding branch of these defences for the purpose of training the additional units at present being raised, or contemplated being raised, in the near future by the Government?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

The answer to the first part is five, and to the second part that additional camps will be established to meet expanding requirements.

Mr. Day

Will these camps be capable of expansion if necessary?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

It is proposed to add to them.

Mr. Davidson

Does the right hon. Gentleman intend to co-operate with Mr. Butlin in the establishment of these camps?
