HC Deb 20 November 1987 vol 122 c689W
Mr. Sean Hughes

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what construction work is being carried out on behalf of his Department near Lydford in the Dartmoor national park; and what planning procedures have been or will be invoked.

Mr. Freeman

I refer the hon. Member to the reply that I gave my hon. Friend the Member for South Hams (Mr. Steen) on 14 July at column434. No construction work is at present being carried out at Lydford on behalf of the Ministry of Defence. Outline proposals for the replacement of Willsworthy camp were put to the Dartmoor national park authority on 19 October 1987, and the normal planning procedures are being followed.
