HC Deb 22 July 1964 vol 699 c96W
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.
