HC Deb 22 February 1973 vol 851 c167W
63. Mr. John

asked the Minister of State for Defence how much of the land into which the Nugent Committee has been inquiring is derelict; and what is the estimated cost of restoring such surplus land to a condition where it is socially useful.

Mr. Blaker

The Defence Lands Committee under the chairmanship of Lord Nugent of Guildford is reviewing Ministry of Defence land holdings under the terms of reference announced in the House on 14th January 1971. None of the land under consideration by the committee is officially classed as derelict. The second part of the hon. Member's question therefore does not arise.—[Vol. 809, c.244–7.]
