§ Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he plans to redevelop the Regents Park barracks in Albany Street, London; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Robert C. Brown
Regents Park Barracks is one of a number of important barrack sites in London all of which are required by the Army in the long term and which are being modernised or re-built according to a closely co-ordinated programme. When feasibility studies into the use of certain other sites have been completed, it will be possible to decide on the long term occupants of Regents Park Barracks and draw up a timetable for the necessary works services. It is not expected that the reconstruction work will begin before the mid-1980s.
