HC Deb 24 September 1948 vol 456 cc195-6W
Mr. Hollis

asked the Secretary of State for War why 2,000 corrugated sheets from the R.E. Dump, Horton Road, Devizes, have been dumped at Monkton Farleigh Dump; and whether they will be used for some useful purpose.

Mr. Shinwell

The dump at Horton Road, Devizes, is not a Royal Engineers store but a refuse pit on War Department land, which has been used by units of all kinds including units of the American forces. The corrugated iron sheets are not of Army origin. The stores are being removed to Monkton Farleigh pending a decision as to the method of disposal. The corrugated iron sheets are being made available to the Ministry of Supply as scrap.
