At Defence Questions, I was pleased to be able to support the excellent work going into Hightown Barracks in Wrexham - the home of the Welsh Fusiliers - to give it a new lease of life.
I look forward to welcoming the Secretary of State for Defence in due course!
You can read the question and the response:
Hightown barracks in Wrexham is the spiritual home of the Royal Welch Fusiliers. Ten years ago it was destined to be a housing estate but now it contains the Defence Mental Health Clinic, a reserve field detachment, cadets, a preparation college, support for transport and an inspiring anti-tank company. So will the Secretary of State agree to visit the barracks with me and thank Colonel Nick Lock and his team?
Answer (Secretary of State for Defence, Ben Wallace MP):
Thank you, Mr Speaker. It is the hon. Lady’s birthday, and I am not sure if she would think it a birthday present or not but I will be delighted to visit it with her.
