RAF Regiment Field Squadron

Volume 496: debated on Monday 20 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when he expects to announce the UK basing arrangements for the new RAF Regiment Field Squadron. (286987)

I refer the hon. Member to the written ministerial statement ‘RAF Force Protection Wing’ released on 9 July 2009, Official Report, column 51WS. The new RAF Regiment Field Squadron will be based at either RAF Shawbury or RAF Leuchars. The final outcome of the study to determine the optimum basing solution is expected by autumn 2009.
