Defence Storage and Distribution Agency

Volume 493: debated on Monday 1 June 2009

20. To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what assessment he has made of the future role of the Defence Storage and Distribution Agency. (277552)

The Defence Storage and Distribution Agency is being reviewed under the Treasury’s Operational Efficiency programme in order to maximise value for money for the taxpayer. A progress report was published in the Operational Efficiency Programme Final Report in April 2009. Work to date has concentrated on identifying a range of possible business models to deliver its services while seeking to minimise its ongoing capital investment requirement. The next phase of work will also include a review of the boundaries, synergies and relationship with the Defence Support Group.

Further progress will be reported in the pre-Budget statement in the autumn.
