HC Deb 13 December 1949 vol 470 cc2497-8
33. Mr. Studholme

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the prisoner-of-war camp at Willsworthy in the parish of Mary Tavy has now been derelict for many years; and whether he will take steps to have the unsightly buildings and rusty barbed wire removed.

Mr. Shinwell

Willsworthy Camp, the site of which is owned by my Department, is used as a tented camp site for training. The range area is also in constant use. Certain buildings are required as permanent structures for the tented camps, but the hutting and barbed wire used for the prisoners of war cage during the war is being removed as quickly as labour can be spared from more urgent tasks.
