HC Deb 27 October 1965 vol 718 cc56-7W
33. Mr. Newens

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what airfields, Army camps and other Service stations which are not in full use are at present held by his Department; and what is the total area of land which is involved.

Mr. Reynolds

Forty-two airfields, camps and stations are not fully used at present but are held to meet changing tasks and requirements: they cover some 16,000 acres. This does not include camps and barracks which have been declared redundant and are for disposal, nor those which are being rebuilt.
