§ 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.
