Cluster Munitions

Volume 502: debated on Tuesday 8 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether cluster munitions are stored at (a) RAF Lakenheath and (b) other RAF bases occupied and controlled by US visiting forces. (303581)

The United States Visiting Force (USVF) stores various weapons in the UK. The USVF inventory of weapons is declared annually to the Ministry of Defence who ensure all weapons are appropriately licensed and stored. For operational and security reasons, and to ensure relations between the UK and US are not prejudiced, it would be inappropriate to disclose the numbers, types and locations of such weapons.
