NEW CAMPS may have to be built for British troops in Iraq following the handover of power to the interim Iraqi government.
The British currently have bases in a number of Iraqi buildings, one of which is one of Saddam Hussein's former palaces.
Captain Donald Francis, based with the British troops in Iraq, said: 'It is definitely the intention to move out of any Iraqi buildings. It is well within the bounds of possibility that troops will have to leave those buildings for purpose-made military camps.'
It is unclear whether the new facilities will be put out to tender or built under existing agreements with contractors.
