HC Deb 28 October 1965 vol 718 c85W
Mr. Hayman

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what establishment improvements are required at Culdrose to remedy the defects there; how much has been spent on household improvements at Culdrose during the past year, and on what; and what steps he is taking to bring conditions for the men who work at Culdrose up to the required standard.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

About £28,000 was spent in 1964–65 on the single living accommodation at R.N. Air Station, Culdrose, on maintenance and on minor improvements. It is planned to spend about £34,000 this financial year on maintenance and improvements, particularly to the showers and bathrooms.

My right hon. Friend the Minister of Public Building and Works has drawn up a development plan for rebuilding all the single living accommodation. It is hoped that it will be possible to start work on site in 1967–68 and it is estimated that it will take four to five years to complete.
