HC Deb 20 June 1950 vol 476 cc104-5W
Mr. Deer

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning whether he will now make a statement regarding the occupation of the greater part of Clumber Park in the county of Nottingham by the military authorities; and when this well-known beauty spot will be open to the public.

Mr. Lindgren

Three hundred and forty acres have already been derequisitioned, and my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for War intends to give up another 800 as soon as arrangements for clearing and receiving the ammunition can be made. In addition, 32 acres are being cleared now to provide parking facilities.
