HC Deb 31 March 1920 vol 127 cc1268-9W
Viscountess ASTOR

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the War Office intend to remove the garrison head quarters from Plymouth to Exeter; and, if so, if he will consider the possibility, in view of the greater importance of Plymouth as a military centre, of recon sidering their decision?


It is intended to retain a garrison headquarters at Plymouth, but in a modified form as compared with the pre-war garrison headquarters. The matter has been fully considered, and it has been decided that circumstances do not justify any larger headquarters than that contemplated.
