HC Deb 29 May 1956 vol 553 c9
10. Sir C. Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for War how many danger areas still exist which have not yet been cleared of mines and other explosives; where these areas are; and when they will be cleared.

The Secretary of State for War(Mr. Antony Head)

There are eight such areas. Minefields at Fairlight Glen and Mundesley, which we hope to have cleared early in 1958; five old training areas at Lydd, Trawsfynydd, Warcop, Fylingdales, and Crocknakeeferty, and a war-time ammunition depot at Abinger Common. These six areas should be cleared this year.
