HC Deb 15 July 1964 vol 698 cc228-9W
52. Mr. J. Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has for the use of the Distillers Company factory owned by his Department at Kenfig, Glamorgan, when this company ceases operations on that site.

Mr. Ramsden

The Distillers Company which leases the calcium carbide plant at Kenfig for commercial production, plans to cease operations there about the middle of 1966. I can foresee at present no Service requirement for operating the plant thereafter. If our retention of the factory is then found to be no longer justified, we will dispose of it under normal procedures.
