HC Deb 11 November 1920 vol 134 c1389W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions if the Westbere Camp, Staines Hill, Sturry, Kent, which was the only permanent camp in the district during the War, and was supplied with gas, water, and drainage, has not yet been dismantled and restored to the owners of the land; whether for some time past this camp has been used for no purpose except to give the appearance of employment for a number of useless officials; and whether he will now give instructions that this camp shall be notified forthwith to the Disposal Board,as available for sale, and take steps to realise the assets and restore the land to its owners?


I have been asked to reply, but I regret that in the time available it has not been possible for me to investigate the statements contained in the hon. Member's question. I will communicate with him as soon as I am in a position to do so.
