RAF Brize Norton

Volume 492: debated on Thursday 14 May 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when the Chapel of Rest which is planned to accommodate repatriated bodies of fallen servicemen at RAF Brize Norton will have been completed; whether he plans to return repatriations to RAF Brize Norton from RAF Lyneham; and if he will make a statement. (274633)

On current plans, repatriations will return to RAF Brize Norton in 2011. No decision has yet been made on when construction of a Chapel of Rest at the station might start. Appropriate facilities to support bereaved families and the dignity of the repatriation ceremony are to be provided as part of the overall development of the station.
