RAF Lyneham

Volume 506: debated on Monday 22 February 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the construction cost was of the (a) new HQ building, (b) C130J simulator building, (c) new HQ for (i) 24 and (ii) 30 Squadron, (d) new gymnasium, (e) new pitch roof on the barrack blocks, (f) new sergeant’s mess annexe, (g) new HQ for 47 Air Despatch Regiment and (h) extension to the security fence on the south side of the main entrance; and what further infrastructure improvements are planned to take place at RAF Lyneham. (310129)

In line with guidance from the National Audit Office, financial records are not retained for longer than six years and the information requested is therefore not available prior to 2004. Most of the construction projects referred to in the question were completed before this date and are no longer considered as new. The fitness suite was completed in 2004 and cost £784,000. The extension of the security fence was completed in 2009 and cost £18,000. These have been minimal expenditure on infrastructure since collocation at RAF Brize Norton was announced in 2003.
