§ 84. Lieut.-Commander Baldock
asked the Minister of Defence whether he is yet in a position to make an announcement about the substitution of a garrison of Royal Marines for the present garrison at Bermuda, in view of the disappointment the decision to withdraw the garrison has caused in the Colony, and in view of the value of ceremonial as a tourist attraction.
§ 86. Major Wall
asked the Minister of Defence whether agreement has now been reached on the replacement of the Army garrison maintained in Bermuda by a Royal Marine garrison.
§ Mr. Sandys
No, Sir. This forms part of the wider review of the distribution of our forces overseas generally, which is not completed.
