Volume 467: debated on Tuesday 13 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what options his Department is considering for Package Two of the Defence Training Review Rationalisation Programme. (162514)

As the Under-Secretary of State for Defence, (Derek Twigg) stated in his written ministerial statement on 25 October 2007, Official Report, columns 14-15WS, we will continue to consider a range of options for Package 2. These options will vary from adaptations to Metrix' original PFI proposals, through to a full conventional procurement. This work to develop an affordable project will continue to focus on how best to improve our accommodation and training, and meet our commitments following the review to improve the support, welfare and wellbeing of our trainees. An update on the programme will be provided next year when this work has matured.
