HC Deb 23 July 1959 vol 609 c172W
Sir P. Agnew

asked the Secretary of State for War the number of civilian workmen employed at the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers Camp at Long Marston on the latest convenient date and five years previously, respectively, and the numbers of service personnel stationed there on the same dates, approximately; and if he will furnish similar information for the camp at Littleton, so far as it is applicable.

Mr. Soames

Long Marston is the home of No. 1 Engineer Stores Depot and I have taken the Question to refer to the whole camp rather than to the R.E.M.E. element therein.

The July figures are given below. Those for civilians in 1954 are approximate. Honeybourne is a sub-depot of Long Marston and is about two miles from the villages of Littleton.
