HC Deb 19 February 1979 vol 963 c24W
Sir Timothy Kitson

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the total area of training ground at Catterick Camp; if it is intended to increase or reduce the present acreage for military training; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Duffy

The military training areas in Catterick garrison total about 18,000 acres. A reduction in our land holding is not contemplated and we have no plans at present to increase it.
