§ Mr. Ainger
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence (1) what discussions he has had with telecommunications companies concerning the erection of telecommunication aerials for use by organisations other than his Department;
(2) how many telecommunication aerials have been constructed on his Department's property for use by private companies in the last five years; and where they are sited.
§ Mr. Aitken
It is our policy to encourage the use of our facilities by private companies where this is compatible with defence needs. Details of these numerous arrangements are not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
