HC Deb 08 October 1946 vol 427 c6W
Mr. Asterley Jones

asked the Secretary of State for War whether it is proposed to close No. 5 Command Workshops, Buntingford, Herts; and, if so, whether he will give an assurance that the buildings will be used to give employment locally.

Mr. Bellenger

This workshop will be closed in the near future. The buildings are still required for storage and local civilian employees will be needed; but I am afraid that there will be little or no place in the new establishment for skilled tradesmen of the types now employed.
