Volume 472: debated on Monday 3 March 2008

19. To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has for Devonport naval base. (190376)

As my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Defence announced in July 2007 at the conclusion of the Naval Base Review, the most effective means of supporting the Royal Navy is to retain all three naval bases, including Devonport.

In doing so we will continue to work with industry to develop innovative programmes that deliver effective, efficient and sustainable support to the Royal Navy.
