Mr. Maxton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many camps have been completed in Scotland under the Camps Act, 1939; how many are in course of construction; how many more are to be proceeded with; and what use the finished camps are being put to?

Mr. Colville

Five camps are being built in Scotland. The first of these will be ready for occupation next month. It is anticipated that three will be ready by the end of March and the other by the end of May. The intention is to use these camps in connection with the Government evacuation scheme.
