§ Mr. Ron Lewis
asked the Minister of State for Defence if he will now make a statement on the future use of Hadrian's 23W Camp, Carlisle; and if he will reconsider the possibility of establishing Hadrian's Camp again as a military unit of some kind.
§ Mr. Ian Gilmour
No future use is foreseen for Hadrian's Camp as a military installation. No other Government Departments have expressed an interest, and a small area of the camp is in the process of being sold to the Cumbria Police Authority. Discussions about the disposal of the remainder are in progress with the local authorities.
