HC Deb 01 May 1968 vol 763 c187W
10. Mr. Burden

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what further cuts in defence establishments in the South-East of England are planned to take place in the next two years.

Mr. Reynolds

The implications of the recent Defence White Paper for our establishments in the United Kingdom are still being worked out, and I cannot yet say which units or establishments will be affected. We shall, in accordance with our normal practice, consult with those Departments responsible for regional planning and inform the employees concerned and the hon. Members whose constituencies are affected at the earliest possible moment.
