§ 12. Mr. R. Bell
asked the Secretary of State for War what progress has been made since 31st July, 1951, towards making a permanent arrangement for the administration of Iver Grove Camp, Buckinghamshire.
§ Mr. F. Maclean
This is a very difficult problem. We have made several attempts to solve it without success. We are trying again.
§ Mr. Bell
Inasmuch as that Answer differs only in being a little more hopeful from the Answer given to me four-and-a-half years ago, and inasmuch as the matter has not only been under continuous consideration, but also active negotiation for four-and-a-half years, would my hon. Friend bring it to early finality, and relieve his Department of what by now must be an almost crushing burden?
§ Mr. Maclean
We are as anxious as my hon. Friend to get this problem solved. But he must realise that it is a delicate problem and a number of different interests are involved.
