asked Her Majesty's Government:
What decision they have made about the future of the Ministry of Defence and Fleetlands and Almondbank work for the Defence Aviation Repair Agency at Almondbank, Perthshire, on defence helicopters and jets; and why they propose to sell these enterprises to Vector Aerospace, a Canadian company, given the Armed Forces' need for immediate access to skills to repair helicopters. [HL1692]
I refer the noble Baroness to the Written Ministerial Statement I made on 5 February 2008 (Official Report, cols. WS 78-79).
