asked the Secretary of State for Defence if his Department has any plans to acquire land in the Stainmore area of north Yorkshire; and if he will make a statement.

The Ministry of Defence wishes to acquire 802 acres for dry training, ie without live firing. Eden district council has objected formally to the notice of proposed change of use, and we therefore expect to refer the matter to the Department of the Environment under the provisions of DOE circular 18/84, which covers development by Government Departments.
