HC Deb 11 December 1957 vol 579 cc1246-7
26. Mr. George Craddock

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will consider extending the facilities of the open-air baths at Catterick Camp by the provision of a roof and other necessary alterations to enable the baths to be used for a longer period than from May to September.

Mr. J. Amery

Yes, Sir. This proposal is being considered with a number of others.

Mr. Craddock

In view of the great need to extend the facilities at this camp and while thanking the Minister for the attention he has given to the matter, may I ask him to try to hurry up, because this work is absolutely necessary?

Mr. Amery

Like the hon. Member, I have looked into the question myself on the spot and I have every sympathy with the request. I hope that we shall be able to do something to meet it, but this raises issues which go rather wider than Catterick Camp itself.
