§ Mr. Teddy Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on his proposals for the future of the Horseshoe barracks in Shoeburyness.
§ Mr. Archie Hamilton
We are currently considering the options for disposing of Horseshoe barracks and reproviding facilities for which there is a continuing operational requirement, against the background of further advice from our planning consultants. My noble Friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Armed Forces will write to my hon. Friend when this process is complete.
