asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he can now make a statement about the future of RAF Manby.

A decision on the future of Manby has had to wait until the outcome of the defence review could be seen more clearly. It has now been decided that there is no Army or other defence use for the Manby site, excluding the married quarters, and disposal action is being initiated. All the married quarters are being retained, for the present at least, as they are needed for occupation by families from other Royal Air Force stations in the area, but it may prove possible to dispose of some of the quarters in the near future.
