HC Deb 01 April 1947 vol 435 c276W
12. Mr. G. Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for War why a notice of requisition under Defence Regulation 52 has been served in respect of land, comprising 28,050 acres, forming the Penmaenmawr training area, after an assurance had been given by his Department that this area was in course of derequisitioning and clearance.

Mr. J. Freeman

A further order under Defence Regulation 52 was made in respect of this area as, owing to the weather, it has not been possible to clear the land of unexploded missiles. It is not required permanently and as soon as the land has been cleared, the present order will be cancelled and the area released in accordance with the assurance given by my Department.
