HC Deb 27 March 1919 vol 114 cc617-8W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether arrangements have been made for the removal of stabling and other buildings erected for war purposes now standing on public recreation grounds; and whether any steps are being taken to restore public lands as near as possible to pre-war state?


Every endeavour consistent with military requirements is being made to secure the early vacation and removal of buildings erected for war purposes on public recreation grounds. Where military labour is not available for the purpose of restoring such grounds to their pre-war state, payment of the reasonable cost of reinstatement will be duly considered on receipt of an application from the local authorities concerned.
