To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what hydrazine incident response capability exists at RAF Waddington; and how many hydrazine incidents have occurred at RAF Waddington in each of the last three years. [38143]

All RAF Waddington's fire crash and rescue personnel are fully trained—and continue to receive refresher training—in hydrazine emergency handling procedures. Apart from a minor incident on 17 October 1995, which was successfully handled in accordance with standard procedures, there have been no other incidents involving hydrazine at RAF Waddington in the past three years.
