§ 64. Mr. Denzil Freeth
asked the Secretary of State for War what are the details of the important constructional works which are stated in Command Paper 363 to have been already started for the Army at Tidworth; and what is their total cost and their estimated date of completion.
§ Mr. J. Amery
A scheme for modernising a number of barracks at Tidworth has been in progress since 1949, and five barracks, providing up-to-date accommodation for over 3,000 men were completed in September, 1957, at a cost of about £2½ million. Planning for a further two barracks is well advanced, and work on them is expected to begin towards the end of this year for completion in 1960 at a cost of a further £1½ million.
