HC Deb 11 February 1946 vol 419 c7W
Mr. Prescott

asked the Minister of Supply and of Aircraft Production how many huts have been erected by, or on behalf of, his Department at the aqueduct site, Eywood, Blackburn; what has been the cost thereof; what is stored therein; and why the special erection of these structures was necessary.

Mr. Wilmot

Twenty-seven, at a cost of£5,700. They are used for the storage of goods such as chemicals and surplus Service motor cycles of which the manufacturers, who are to recondition them, cannot yet take delivery. Their erection has enabled the requisitioned factory and other space in which they were formerly stored to be released.
