HC Deb 28 July 1976 vol 916 c264W
Mr. Viggers

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) if he will make a statement on the conversion of Fort Brockhurst at Gosport with a view to the fort being open to the public;

(2) what have been the costs up to the present date of the conversion and improvements at Fort Brockhurst at Gosport; and if he will give the anticipated costs to completion;

(3) what is the anticipated date upon which Fort Brockhurst at Gosport should be open to the public.

Mr. Shore

Fort Brockhurst, which is an outstanding example of a 19th century fort, is being repaired and adapted for display to the public as a monument. The cost to April 1976 was £186,000; further expenditure to complete the job over the next two or three years is estimated to amount to £192,000. It is hoped that work will be sufficiently advanced to permit of opening important parts of the fort in 1977.
