HC Deb 04 December 1957 vol 579 c54W
103. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Minister of Defence how much of the proposed£20 million expenditure on the rocket range at South Uist was to be spent this year; how much he estimates will be spent in 1958; and when it is to be completed.

Mr. Sandys

The expenditure in 1957–58 will be about£500,000. I cannot yet say how much will be spent in 1958–59. It is hoped to start using the Hebrides range some time next year.
