HC Deb 24 February 1948 vol 447 cc1753-4
26. Mr. William Teeling

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can make any statement as to the future of Preston Barracks, Brighton; whether it will be amalgamated with the portions of Stanmer Park being held by the War Office for military recreational purposes, and whether the officers at present in charge of the barracks will continue to remain there.

Mr. Shinwell

It is proposed to use Preston Barracks as a Military Convalescent Depot. The barracks will not be amalgamated with the requisitioned portion of Stanmer Park. When the Convalescent Depot is set up, officers of the R.A.M.C. will be in charge of it.
