§ Mr. Millan
asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many married quarters were built at Scone on the site originally purchased in 1939 as a new depot for the Black Watch; in what year they were built; how much they cost; how many are at present occupied; and what plans he has for them.
§ Mr. Ramsden
Twenty-five married officers quarters; 10 married soldiers quarters and 15 garages have been built on the Spoutwells site (near Scone) at a cost of £110,786. Work on the quarters began in 1954–55 and was completed in 1955–56; the garages were completed in 1956–57. Two of these quarters are temporarily unoccupied but there is a continuing requirement for all the quarters in the foreseeable future for officers and men of Headquarters 51 Highland Division/District at Perth.
