Military Bases: Manpower

Volume 472: debated on Tuesday 4 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence which 10 UK military installations have the largest numbers of military personnel. (190713)

Individual defence installations do not routinely publish personnel data, as different organisations and agencies are responsible for the same location or site. Figures for the stationed location of UK Regular Forces are only available at local authority level using centrally held data; to do otherwise would involve disproportionate cost.

Listed are the 10 local authorities with the most stationed military personnel:

1. Portsmouth

2. Richmondshire

3. Plymouth

4. Salisbury

5. Kennet

6. North Kesteven

7. North Wiltshire

8. Westminster

9. Moray

10. West Oxfordshire

Naval Service personnel on sea service are included against the local authority containing the home port of their ship.
