Plea for bar­racks

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

De­fence Sec­re­tary Gavin Wil­liamson has been urged to re­v­erse a planned bar­racks clo­sure.

SNP MSP Chris­tine Gra­hame called on him to save Glen­corse Bar­racks.

The MoD has ear­marked the Penicuik base for clo­sure in 2032 de­spite a £60m re­vamp in 2005.

She said: “The MoD’s long-term planning is all over the place. Af­ter mil­lions of pounds were spent re­vamp­ing Glen­corse bar­racks, they now want to see the mil­i­tary fam­i­lies based there de­canted.”
