§ Captain Kerby
asked the Secretary of State for Air when the pylons at the Royal Air Force Station, Poling, Sussex, were last used; what has been the cost of guarding them since that date; what was the cost of the wire fence surrounding the station when last renewed; and when such renewal was last carried out.
Poling was in use until July, 1956. The cost of guarding it since then has been about £5,000; most of this was incurred before the technical equipment was removed in March, 1957, and the size of the guard reduced. The wire fence was renewed in February, 1955, at a cost of £2,000.
