To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the future of (a) RAF Coltishall and (b) RAF Scampton. (116947)

[holding answer 22 January 2007]: Former RAF Coltishall has been declared surplus to defence requirements and is currently in the process of disposal.

An element of the United Kingdom’s Air Surveillance and Control System, one of the Air Combat Service Support Units and the RAF Acrobatic Team are based at RAF Scampton. The RAF is conducting studies to consider basing options for these units and this may affect the future of RAF Scampton. No decisions have yet been taken.
