HC Deb 26 June 1989 vol 155 cc373-4W
Mr. Wilson

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many additional houses for United States navy personnel are planned in the Dunoon-Sandbank area; what is the estimated cost of their construction; and what military functions will be performed by the occupants of the additional housing.

Mr. Neubert

[holding answer 22 June]: I understand that the United States navy is in the process of leasing up to 50 buildings in the Dunoon-Sandbank areas to house United States naval and civilian personnel involved in maintaining support for the ships and facilities in Holy loch. Some work will be required to bring the buildings up to the required standard and to facilitate use of United States domestic appliances. The United States navy also intends to investigate the possibility of leasing a further 44 houses. The details and costs of this programme are a matter for the United States Government.

44. Sir Michael McNair-Wilson

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many boys, the sons of service personnel, have attended Crookham Court School on Ministry of Defence grants since 1974.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

[pursuant to his reply, 19 June 1989, c. 59, and the reply, 12 June 1989, c. 321]: There are presently six children of service parents at Crookham Court school.
