Chorley Territorial Army Centre

Volume 455: debated on Monday 8 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence (1) whether the kitchens at the Chorley Territorial Army Centre have been condemned; (107260)

(2) when he expects work (a) to begin and (b) to be completed on the new kitchens at Chorley Territorial Army Centre.

The kitchens at the Chorley TA Centre have not been condemned. They are structurally sound and are served by correctly-certificated utilities. Much of the kitchen equipment is in need of replacement; and a survey to identify the extent of the work required was carried out on 13 December and will report by 22 December. The work to replace the equipment will commence and complete early in 2007. However, plans cannot be finalised until the survey report has been submitted.

I will write again early in the new year with details of the refurbishment programme of work.
