§ 5. Mr. Peter Bottomley
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the future of the Defence Codification Establishment, Mottingham, London SE9.
§ The Under-Secretary of State for Defence for the Army (Mr. Barney Hayhoe)
An announcement on the future of the DCA, Mottingham will be made as soon as a final decision has been taken about the MOD work to be dispersed to Glasgow.
§ Mr. Bottomley
Can my hon. Friend assure me that the cost savings of keeping the DCA where it is will be fully taken into account?
§ Mr. Hayhoe
I can give that assurance to my hon. Friend. I hope that an announcement on these matters will be made before the end of the year.
