HC Deb 12 May 1978 vol 949 c628W
Mr. Awdry

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the nature of the construction works which are being carried out in or under the pavement to the north of Knightsbridge Barracks; how long the work has been in progress; when it will be finished; and what is the estimated cost.

Mr. Marks

This work is to protect the basement parts of the barracks from the effects of oil which has leaked from two CEGB high tension electric cables under South Carriage Drive. The work, estimated to cost some £800,000, started in September 1976 and should be completed by the end of 1978.
