HC Deb 30 March 1976 vol 908 c437W
Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what representations were made by Her Majesty's Government about the United States Navy's decision to move its communications functions from Londonderry and Dungiven to Scotland; what are the implications for NATO strategy of this decision; and whether he will make a statement about the future use of the sites.

Mr. Mason

Her Majesty's Government were fully consulted on this matter. It was a decision for the United States Government. Relocation of the facilities will have no effect on NATO strategy. The future of the sites is under consideration.
