To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will issue appropriate identification permits to parents of service personnel in order that they may access the Brize Norton military base to collect their offspring on arrival from overseas duties or deliver them to leave for overseas duties. [HL5615]

Parents of service personnel are permitted access to RAF Brize Norton by prior arrangement with the station. The station publishes a passenger terminal information leaflet, which sets out the procedure for UK nationals and non-UK nationals. This enables parents to gain temporary passes to access the terminal in order to drop off or collect a passenger. The leaflet can be downloaded from the following website: www.raf.mod.uk/rafbrizenorton/flyinginfo/airterminal.cfm.
