§ 2. Mr. Morris
asked the Secretary of State for War how much land is now held by the War Office in Wales; and, in view of the contraction of the number of soldiers, whether he will make a statement as to the future needs of the War Office for these lands.
§ Mr. Profumo
The War Office at present holds about 48,000 acres in Wales, 9,000 acres of which are being given up. We must keep the remainder for the long-term needs of the Army.
