HC Deb 16 December 1982 vol 34 c258W
Mr. Cartwright

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what tree planting is being undertaken on land belonging to his Department at Woolwich common; for what reason; and at what cost to public funds.

Mr. Wiggin

Tree planting on Woolwich common is being carried out to reinstate the site of a recent demolition, to provide a screen for married quarters principally against noise from the south circular road, and by the old garrison church to reduce future maintenance costs. The total cost is expected to be £20,000.
