St. Kilda

Volume 496: debated on Wednesday 9 September 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence by what mechanisms the outer range area will be (a) monitored and (b) used by his Department in circumstances in which its proposal to close its base on St. Kilda are implemented. (290697)

The proposal would not involve the closure of the St. Kilda base. Range area monitoring would also not be affected by this proposal. The surveillance radars on St. Kilda remain but would be remotely controlled and deep range clearance would therefore be unaffected.
