asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he can give an assurance that the married quarters at Colerne will continue to be fully occupied by RAF personnel in spite of the proposed closure of RAF Colerne.

It is too early to say whether the married quarters will be required, in whole or in part, if RAF Colerne is closed.

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he has any plans for a service unit to take over the RAF station at Colerne; and when he anticipates he will be in a position to announce his decision.

We are currently examining the possibility of another defence requirement for Colerne if it is vacated by the Royal Air Force. I am unable to forecast when a decision will be reached, although the outcome will not be unduly delayed.
