HC Deb 05 May 1976 vol 910 cc381-2W
Mr Douglas-Mann

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether there are any, and if so which, sites or establishments within the control of his Department within the Greater London area and/or the South-Eastern Region which might be suitable for temporary use by gipsies.

Mr. William Rodgers

It is for civil authorities, not my Department, to consider the accommodation needs of the civil community, including gipsies. Property surplus to defence requirements is passed for disposal to the Property Services Agency, which offers all nonagricultural property for which there is no Government requirement to the local authority.
