HC Deb 23 March 1960 vol 620 c43W
64. Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Secretary of State for War what are his plans for the future of Dorchester Barracks, in view of the amalgamation of the Devon-Dorset Regiment; and whether he will give an assurance that the barracks will be fully occupied, in view of the fact that in the meantime the Borough of Dorchester is losing approximately £4,500 in rates, which is a serious loss for a comparatively small borough.

Mr. Soames

Except for a small area needed by the Territorial Army and for other purposes, the barracks will be sold.
