RAF St. Athan

Volume 479: debated on Monday 1 September 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for Chesham and Amersham of 15 July 2008, Official Report, column 314W, on RAF St. Athan, whether it is planned to make the Defence Technical Academy available to military personnel from friendly foreign states; and what accommodation facilities are planned for the academy. (221331)

The armed forces have a long tradition of delivering military training to foreign students and it is likely that this arrangement will continue at the Defence Technical Academy at St. Athan. The Defence Training Review Package 1 project has a requirement to provide a full range of service accommodation for all entitled service personnel who are either attending courses or serving on the staff of the Defence Technical Academy St. Athan.
