§ Mr. Gow
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what proposals he has for improving Moody Brook camp in the Falkland Islands; whether he has any plans to rebuild the Royal Marines camp at a site closer to the airfield; whether he will list the special allowances paid to Her Majesty's Forces in the Falkland Islands; and what criteria he applied when deciding on the rate of those allowances.
§ Mr. Wellbeloved
The Property Services Agency is to undertake a feasibility study in the near future into ways of improving accommodation at Moody Brook camp. At the same time an assessment will be made of the possibilities of rebuilding at alternative sites. Members of Her Majesty's Forces in the Falkland Islands receive the normal allowances to which they are entitled; there are no special allowances for Her Majesty's Forces in the Falkland Islands.
