HC Deb 08 March 1966 vol 725 c474W
Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many drill halls in Dorset will become redundant owing to his defence plans; and how he proposes to dispose of them.

Mr. Reynolds

The number will be known when the needs of the Home Defence Force and the Army Cadet Force have been settled. If a surplus drill hall is not required by another Government Department, the local authority will be given the opportunity of buying it; otherwise it will be sold on the open market.
