§ 48. Miss Joan Lestor
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the estimated amount by which the defence budget will be reduced by the changes planned for the Admiralty Compass Observatory in Slough.
§ Dr. Gilbert
Consultation with the staff and trade union sides of the Whitley Council over the changes planned for the Admiralty Compass Observatory, Slough, has not yet begun. It would, therefore, be premature to state what reductions may be made to the defence budget.
