HC Deb 12 April 1961 vol 638 c216
1. Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Minister of Defence how many Service married quarters have become redundant in the last four years; what was their original cost; and what arrangements were made for their disposal.

The Minister of Defence (Mr. Harold Watkinson)

The number is 844. Their original cost was about £1,250,00. A total of 590 have been transferred to other Government Departments, leased or sold, and the disposal of the remainder is being negotiated.

Mr. Wingfield Digby

Mr. Watkinson
