To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether his Department is proposing to make further use itself of the Daedalus site at Lee-on-the-Solent. [131263]

The Ministry of Defence continues to assess the scope for estate rationalisation across the whole of mainland Great Britain. Areas such as Portsmouth, Gosport, and Fareham currently accommodating a high incidence of MOD activity are a particular focus for this work.The Daedalus site may present an opportunity to facilitate rationalisation within these areas or elsewhere. No specific recommendations, for the Daedalus main site, have yet been made and it will be some time before the necessary studies have been conducted and completed.
