HC Deb 01 March 1955 vol 537 c256W
107. Mr. Hannan

asked the Secretary of State for War what proportion of the £15 million programme for building and modernising barracks has been allocated to Scotland; and if he will give the details and, in particular, state his proposals to provide modern married living quarters at Maryhill Barracks.

Mr. F. Maclean

5 per cent. The Black Watch and Highland Light Infantry Depots are to be rebuilt while that of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders is to be enlarged. New barracks are under construction at Craigie Hall and the Military Hospital at Cowglen is to be modernised. New accommodation will also be provided at the range at Kirkcudbright. Married quarters fall outside the £15 million programme and a considerable sum is being spent on them in Scotland. Twenty-seven married quarters at Maryhill Barracks are to be modernised and 11 more are to be converted into eight modern quarters.
