HC Deb 07 March 1958 vol 583 c170W
Sir N. Hulbert

asked the Secretary of State for War where the infantry brigade depots, mentioned in the White Paper on the future organisation of the Army, Command Paper No. 230, are to be located.

Mr. Soames

The following locations have been settled for the new infantry brigade depots:

Brigade Depot
Home Counties Howe Barracks, Canterbury
Lancastrian Fulwood Barracks, Preston
Midland Glen Parva Barracks, Leicester
Wessex Topsham Barracks, Exeter
Light Infantry Copthorne Barracks, Shrewsbury
Green Jackets Upper Barracks, Winchester
East Anglian Bury St. Edmunds
Mercian Whittington Barracks, Lichfield
Highland Gordon Barracks, Aberdeen
Fusilier Sutton Coldfield

Sutton Coldfield is an R.A.F. station which is being transferred from the Air Ministry. I hope to make a further announcement about the locations of the remaining five brigade depots in the near future.
