§ Group-Captain Wilcock
asked the. Secretary of State forWar why Donnington Park, Derby, cannot now be derequisitioned by the military and revert to its pre-war use as a sporting centre for the youth of the Midlands.
§ Mr. Lawson
A considerable amount of constructional work has been carried out at this depot at the public expense and it is still badly needed by the Army, particularly if the release of vehicle depots on housing estates and by-pass roads is not to be unduly delayed. I do not, therefore, consider that it would be in the public interest to release it at present.
