HC Deb 12 February 1920 vol 125 c259W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions whether any decision has yet been, come to regarding the future of the Royal Gunpowder Factory. Waltham Abbey; and whether, in order to relieve the anxiety of the employees of this factory and the community in the district, he can now make a definite statement on the matter?


The answer to the first part of the question is yes, Sir. A portion of the factory will be retained as an annexe to the Enfield establishment and the remainder will, in due course, be announced for disposal.
