asked the Minister of Defence what are the lapsing dates of the requisition of land held by the Services Departments under Defence Regulations 51 and 52, respectively; whether land so held will then be returned to the owner; or what methods of retention he proposes.

I have been asked to reply. For this particular purpose, the effective lapsing dates are 24th February, 1948, for Defence Regulation 51, and 31st December, 1947, for Defence Regulation 52. It is proposed, however, to introduce legislation to extend the towers for a further period.
