§ Mr. Hooson
asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many KC135 tanker aircraft have been given permission to land at any air base in the United Kingdom for which an application has been made by the United States Air Force for reactivation or change of status; and how many KC135 tanker aircraft have actually landed.
§ Mr. Wellbeloved
Her Majesty's Government have received a request by the United States Air Force to base further KC135 tanker aircraft in the United Kingdom. A number of alternative locations are being considered. No KC135 aircraft has been given permission to land or has landed at any of these bases since the request was received.
