§ Mr. Strang
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether he will list each occasion that the swimming pool by Deal barracks has been made available to cross-Channel operators; to which operators it has been made available, in the last 12 months; and how much was charged for the pool's hire on each occasion.
§ Mr. Freeman
The P and O company is the only cross-Channel operator to have used the swimming pool belonging to the Royal Marines School of Music in the last 12 months. Details of charges were given in my reply to the hon. Member for Newham, North-West (Mr. Banks) on 26 May 1988.
