HC Deb 01 July 1952 vol 503 c19W
Major Hicks

Beach asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that a considerable amount of Bailey bridge equipment formerly used for the South Bank Festival has been unused for a considerable time; and whether he will allocate it for sites of bridges still not reconstructed which were demolished by enemy action in the war.

Mr. Head

This Bailey bridge equipment is to be removed next month, but will still be needed by the Army.
