What is the minimum surface for a storrage facility?
I think a solution would be to build cryostats and do the training in France 
where there is a facility ready to use and limit the UK to a simple garage 
sized site. When there will be more money, a larger facility could be built. 
Nobody has a 50 sq. meter backyard surface for a prefabricated shelter?
