HC Deb 31 July 1963 vol 682 c101W
Mr. Swingler

asked the Secretary of State for War what inquiries he has received from persons interested in taking over Madeley storage depôt; what steps he is taking, in view of local unemployment, to ensure that it is used in future to provide employment; and when he intends to dispose of it.

Mr. Godber

Three inquiries have so so far been received from parties interested in the future of the Madeley Depôt when it becomes surplus next year. In accordance with normal practice we are consulting other Government Departments. If they do not require Madeley Depôt, it will probably be offered for sale by public auction as soon as possible after my Department has ceased to use it.
