I refer my noble Friend to the answer my noble friend the then Minister of State (Earl Howe) gave him on 1 November 2018 to Question HL10938.

The Army began its £10 million restoration and refurbishment of Wellington Barracks in 2018, and work on the assessment phase continues. Once this is complete, we will be able to set out more detail about the modernisation plans for Wellington Barracks.

Options for how best to deliver State Ceremonial and Public Duties are being considered as part of the Department's work on estate optimisation within London, which includes consideration of Hyde Park Barracks in consultation with the Crown Estate who own the land. No decision has yet been taken on the future of the barracks.
