HC Deb 04 March 1964 vol 690 c1284
12. Mr. Farr

asked the Secretary of State for War what proportion of the Glen Parva Barracks site at Wigston is needed for War Office use; and if the remainder will now be released for other public use.

Mr. Kirk

About a fifth of the barrack site is required for continued military use: the remainder is being offered to other Government Departments but, if no bids are received, the normal process of disposal will be followed.

Mr. Farr

I thank my hon. Friend for that reply. Will he remind other Government Departments when offering the site of the desirability of decentralisation from Whitehall?

Mr. Kirk

Yes, Sir.
