§ Mr. Trotter
asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he intends to approve the move of the Army's driver training schools from Bordon and Longmoor to the RAF stations at Driffield and Lumfield; if so, what will happen to the camps at Bordon and Longmoor; and how many civilian jobs will be lost.
§ Mr. Robert C. Brown
The proposal to move the Army School of Transport 433W to Leconfield and Driffield is to be implemented. The future use of the camps at Longmoor and Bordon is under consideration, and until this has been decided it is not possible to say what the future employment position will be. There are currently about 280 civilian posts associated with the Army School of Transport at Longmoor and Bordon.
