§ Mr. Cartwright
asked the Secretary of State for Defence (1) when he expects to be able to announce a decision about the size, position, cost and starting date for a new headquarters office building for quality assurance staff at Woolwich Arsenal;
(2) when he expects to be able to announce a decision about the future of the royal laboratory pavilions at Woolwich Arsenal;
(3) when the review of land usage at Woolwich Arsenal began; how many different options have been considered; and when final recommendations are expected.
§ Mr. Lee
Land usage at the Royal Arsenal, Woolwich, is under intensive review. I am now considering recommendations based on studies into the long-term accommodation requirements of the directorate general of defence quality assurance which embrace the proposal for a new headquarters building and the future of the land at the Royal Arsenal, including the future of the royal laboratory pavilions.
