HC Deb 13 February 1979 vol 962 c461W
42. Mr. Gerry Fowler

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he can yet give a date for the transfer of the Wrekin rifle range to an alternative site, as recommended and agreed five years ago.

Mr. Robert C. Brown

No. Redeployments which are planned to be completed in the next few years may call into question the need for either the existing range or the provision of an alternative.

Until this has been decided it would not be prudent to spend substantial sums on a new range and the requirement will be reviewed in the early 1980s.
