8. Mr. Slater
asked the Secretary of State for War what his intentions are regarding the military camp at Sedge-field; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. H. Fraser
The camp is no longer required and my right hon. Friend is arranging for its disposal.
Does not the hon. Gentleman agree that these camps remain vacant for too long before anything is done? The decision to wind up such a camp should be followed by immediate action. Would he not also agree that in the course of winding up such camps it would be as well to make contact with representatives of Government Departments such as the Board of Trade? Perhaps this camp could be transferred to one of these Departments.
§ Mr. Fraser
We are in touch with other Government Departments, but at the moment families are still living in this camp. It will not be cleared until the end of this month.
