HC Deb 28 February 1962 vol 654 c144W
58. Mr. Box

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will give instructions for the release of Maindy Barracks and fields to Cardiff City Council who require these 27½ acres of land for housing and recreational purposes.

Mr. Profumo

Maindy Barracks will continue to be needed for Regular and Territorial Army units, and I regret that I cannot agree to their release. I recently made special arrangements by which the Cardiff City Educational Authorities can use the fields for recreational purposes.
