§ Mr. ERSKINE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether the so-called mystery tower in Shoreham Harbour is to be removed; for what purpose was it erected; what it cost; and whether it has over been put to any use?
§ Mr. AMERY
Objections having been raised to the retention of this tower in Shoreham Harbour, the Admiralty have decided that the most economical course is to demolish it. It was originally built as part of a scheme of defence which was not completed when the War ended. Its cost cannot be given separately, but the unfinished scheme cost about £1,266,000. This tower has not been used.
