There are no planned changes to the publication RAF News. However, the team is planned to relocate from RAF Innsworth to RAF High Wycombe later this year as part of the formation of Air Command. As with all publications, RAF News is routinely reviewed for relevance, style and content.
There have been no discussions between Ministers and the employees of the publication RAF News.
Over the last five years the publication RAF News has had an establishment of six posts. The job titles are Editor, Deputy Editor/Chief Sub Editor, Sub Editor, Reporter, Business Manager, and Office Manager.
The publication RAF News was allocated £153,000 for financial year 2007-08. In previous years, the allocation was £149,000 in FY 2006-07, and £144,000 in FY 2005-06. These allocations are net of target income from sales of the publication.
I will write to the hon. Member with any available information prior to 2005-06 and place a copy of my letter in the Library of the House.
