HC Deb 09 July 1957 vol 573 c31W
88. Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Minister of Defence what facilities are made available, if needed, to United Kingdom and colonial forces at the United States naval and air bases in the British West Indies.

Mr. Sandys

No formal arrangements exist for the provision of facilities for United Kingdom and colonial forces at these bases, except that staging facilities for R.A.F. aircraft are made available at the air bases if required. I am sure, however, that if the need for other facilities for our forces should arise, the United States would be very willing to meet this if it were practicable for them to do so.
