RAF Cosford

Volume 464: debated on Wednesday 10 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when he expects to make a statement on future military uses for RAF Cosford in Shropshire. (155976)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 18 June 2007, Official Report, column 1442W, and the statement made by the Minister for the Armed Forces on 12 September 2007, Official Report, column 122WS. The Department is exploring a number of proposals for the future defence use of DCAE Cosford and no decision has yet been made. These proposals include the possibility of basing troops returning to the UK from Germany at Cosford, and further announcements will be made once this work has been completed.
