asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the future of the Defence Codification Establishment, Mottingham, London SE9.
An announcement on the future of the DCA, Mottingham will be made as soon as a final decision has been taken about the MOD work to be dispersed to Glasgow.
Can my hon. Friend assure me that the cost savings of keeping the DCA where it is will be fully taken into account?
I can give that assurance to my hon. Friend. I hope that an announcement on these matters will be made before the end of the year.
