HC Deb 06 May 1969 vol 783 cc64-5W
Mr. Onslow

asked the Secretary of State for Defence how long his Department has been involved in negotiations for the sale of the former Territorial Army Drill Hall in Walton Road, Woking, to the local authority; and, in view of the fact that the continuing delay in settling this matter is impeding the authority's plans to convert the premises for use as a youth centre, whether he will hasten a decision.

Mr. Boyden

Negotiations began in January 1968. The local authority has been in occupation since March 1968. The legal formalities of the sale are particularly complicated, but will be completed as soon as possible.
