§ 37. Mr. Hoy
asked the Secretary of State for War if he has considered the possibility of siting the regimental pay office at Redford Barracks, Edinburgh, instead of Leith Fort, as intimated in his Department's letter to the hon. Member for Leith, and thereby making it possible to release Leith Fort to Edinburgh Corporation for the building of houses.
§ Mr. Woodburn
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, while it is essential to have the workers near the docks, it is not essential to have the clerks in the pay office near the docks, and that the further away from the docks they are the better it will be for themselves and everybody else?
