Military Bases: Wales

Volume 488: debated on Monday 23 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will list the active military sites located in Wales. (244797)

Given the way the information is held, it will take officials a little longer to separately identify all of the active military sites in Wales from those that are not in use.

I will write to the hon. Member and place a copy of my letter in the Library of the House.

Substantive answer from Kevan Jones to David Jones:

I undertook to provide a list of current Ministry of Defence sites in Wales in answer to your Parliamentary Question on 18 December 2008, (Official Report, column 967W).

It should be noted that the list below does not include the Volunteer Estate, Army Career and Information Offices, Armed Forces Careers Offices or Service Family Accommodation.
