To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many copies of the departmental environmental manual have been (a) printed and (b) distributed to staff; and how many copies of the proposed booklet on public access to the defence estate will be published for issue to the public.
Of an initial print run of 10,000 copies of the Ministry of Defence environmental manual some 8,400 copies have already been distributed. An additional 10,000 copies have been printed for further distribution and stock purposes. There will be an initial print of 2,000 copies of the leaflet "Walks on Ministry of Defence land" to coincide with its planned launch in early March. Current plans envisage a final run print of up to 100,000 copies of the leaflet for distribution to the public.
