To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, if he will take any necessary action to restore a seaward marker for the western limit of the measured mile at Spithead, to replace the marker recently removed by the Ministry of Defence.

The Royal Navy no longer has a requirement for the measured mile at Spithead and one of the western markers was removed to make way for the erection of an aerial farm on the same site. There are no plans to replace the marker. Other measured mile facilities are available around the coast.
