§ 71. Commander Pursey
asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty what consideration has been given to the release of sites in the Chatham Command and to the development by the Admiralty of the frontages of Naval Establishments, or to leasing some of these frontages to the local authority or private developers, to provide housing, office, shop or other accommodation.
§ Mr. C. Ian Orr-Ewing
Since 1958 a total of 1,215 acres of Admiralty land in the Chatham area has been transferred to other Government Departments or sold; or is in process of being sold. I am not aware of any surplus frontage land at any Naval Establishments in the Chatham area which we shall be retaining.
