A good deal of work has been done at different times to modernise Maryhill Barracks, but to proceed further with this programme now that we are uncertain how long we shall need the barracks would not be in the interest of public economy. As to Cardross, I regret that I cannot go beyond my Written Answer of 5th March to a similar Question by the hon. Member.
But cannot the hon. Gentleman give us rather more hope of progress in this matter of barracks? After all, his colleague the Secretary of State for Air is now reported to he moving at more than supersonic speed. Cannot the hon. Gentleman at any rate move at some speed in this matter of barracks accommodation, which is, perhaps, the most important single factor in recruiting a voluntary Army?
