§ Mr. J. Arbuthnot
asked the Minister of Works what progress has been made with the disposal of the assets on the site of the Richborough New Wharf; when this is likely to be complete; and whether he can now give a probable date for the restoration work being carried out.
§ Mr. Stokes
It has not yet been possible to realise the Government's assets on the Richborough New Wharf site. It has recently been decided that six of the buildings should be retained for storage, and it is uncertain when the site can be released. The extent to which the land may be restored by my Department is now under consideration.
