Captain A. EVANS
asked the Secretary of State for War what steps the War Office is taking to provide adequate drill halls and other buildings for the Territorial Army in Wales, particularly the 53rd Division; whether he is aware that in one district negotiations for a new drill hall have been in progress for two years; and whether, with a view to encouraging recruiting in this area, he will bring the matter to a conclusion in the near future?
Every endeavour is being made to provide adequate drill halls and other buildings for the Territorial Army in Wales and elsewhere, but I would point out that, at the moment, priority must necessarily be given to buildings for the new Anti-Aircraft units. As regards the second part of the question, if my hon. and gallant Friend will inform me of the district he has in mind, I will look into the matter.
