84. Mr. Blyton

asked the Minister of Supply how many persons are employed at his Department's depot at the anti-aircraft site, East Boldon, Co. Durham; the weekly cost, of keeping the depot open; and what average amount of traffic was received and dispatched each week over the last three months.

Mr. Wilmot

Twelve men are employed at this depot, which costs us about £70 a week to run. Over the last three months an average of 23,000 ammunition components has been received and 15,400 dispatched each week.
