HC Deb 07 June 1946 vol 423 c392W
Mr. Harrison

asked the Secretary of State for War if, in view of the fact that the National Trust have purchased the Clumber Estate, Nottinghamshire, for the benefit of the nation, he will liberate this estate from his Department's use, at an early date, so that it can be made available to the people.

Mr. Lawson

Clumber Park is at present used for the storage of considerable quantities of ammunition. The physical work of disposing of this ammunition will necessarily take a long time, and I regret that the park must, therefore, remain closed to the public for some time to come.
