HC Deb 11 December 1922 vol 159 c2398W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether any decision has yet been come to whereby the Deptford Cattle Market will again be used for the reception of cattle for immediate slaughter?

Lieut.-Colonel JACKSON

It is anticipated that a large portion of this cattle market will be evacuated by the Department in the course of a few months, and the question of the disposal of this area will be taken up in due course with the landlords, the Corporation of the City of London. The area contains facilities for the reception and slaughter of cattle, but the question of its future use for that purpose is of course one for the landlords.
