HC Deb 30 May 1952 vol 501 c203W
Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs why the building, now occupied by the British Marines, at Shinda, in the Province of Hamasien, Eritrea, and valued at, approximately, £25,000 is to be demolished; and if he will consult with the Governments of Eritrea and Ethiopia before any action is taken on this matter.

Mr. Selwyn Lloyd

I understand that there are no British Marines in Eritrea at present. I know of no such place as Shinda in Eritrea. At Ghinda, in the Hamasien Province, there are two camps, the Upper Dongollo camp and the Royal Naval Ammunition Depot, but there is no intention of undertaking demolitions at either. The second part of the Question does not therefore arise.
